The AZ Awards Gala
The winners of the 2019 AZ Awards will be revealed at the AZ Awards Gala in Toronto, on Friday, June 21, 2019. The gala has become the must-attend industry event of the season. Over 500 top architects, designers and related professionals meet and mingle with the finalists, who have travelled to Toronto from as far away as Japan, India, Austria and Brazil to join in the festivities.
The gala also welcomes an annual international guest of honour; last year’s was Winy Maas, co-founder of the Dutch architecture firm MVRDV. Gaetano Pesce and Massimiliano Fuksas were AZ Awards Gala Guests in 2016 and 2017.
Look for announcements later this winter about our special Gala Guest and the 2019 AZ Awards trophy designer. In the meantime, take part in this unique opportunity and submit your best work now!
