The architecture and urban design firm Provencher_Roy has received a National Urban Design Award from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) for its work on designing the plans for Phase 2 of the Technopôle Angus project.
Technopôle Angus was one of nine projects to win awards. Nine Canadian cities “have been enriched by the addition of remarkable urban design initiatives,” commented the 3‑member jury of the 2016 National Urban Design Awards. About Technopôle Angus, the jury noted that “the design creates a public realm with a high degree of pedestrian connectivity and permeability.”
