Last Thursday The City of Calgary held their bi-annual Mayor's Urban Design Awards, and Watershed+ is honoured to have received two awards.
Forest Lawn Lift Station in the 'Urban Fragments' category received an Honourable Mention. This category was described as "projects involving a single, small-scale piece of a building or landscape that contributes significantly to the quality of the public realm...an intervention that contributes to the enjoyment and appreciation of the urban environment".
Lost Spaces Ideas competition, in collaboration with dtalks, received the award for Conceptual/Theoretical Urban Design Projects. This category was for a plan, study, charette, etc, within Calgary that provides a strategy for urban transformation with a long-term vision.
We are excited to work with such an amazing team as part of Watershed+, and would like to recognize dtalks and the numerous departments within The City of Calgary who participated: Water Services, Parks, Transportation, Planning, Public Art.
Our partners for Forest Lawn Lift Station were Associated Engineers, Nemalux LED Lighting, Marshall Tittemore Architects, and contractors Maple Reinders Inc.
