RIGHT HONOURABLE DAVID JOHNSTON ON THE RECIPIENTS OF THE 2012 MEDALS
“The recipients of the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture have distinguished themselves as visionary Canadian architects. They have designed spaces where communities are forged, memories are enshrined and identity is created in-built form. Few architects are able to realize their philosophies so fully in practice and in such diversity of project type and geography.” His Excellency the Right Honourable, David Johnston, C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D., Governor General of Canada, May 8, 2012.
“The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recognize and celebrate outstanding design in recently built projects by Canadian architects. The competition continues a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950. This tradition has provided an important source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural and historic forces which it expresses. The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, with the RAIC College of Fellows, is responsible for the organization and administration of the competition. The Canada Council for the Arts is responsible for selecting and administering the peer assessment jury. The Council also makes a financial contribution to the publication on the laureates. Up to 12 Governor General’s Medals in Architecture are awarded every two years. There is no distinction among the medals awarded.”
