The Wood Design & Building Awards invites North American and International entries for 2021-22 – honouring excellence in wood architecture. The program is an opportunity to discover and celebrate the world’s best wood architecture, in diverse locations and with a wide variety of typologies.

Entries should consist of building projects that show a wide range of wood product applications and demonstrate an understanding of the special qualities of wood, such as strength, durability, beauty and cost-effectiveness.

A jury of prominent architects from Canada and the U.S. will review all entries based on various considerations such as creativity, appropriate use of wood materials in satisfying clients’ building and site requirements and innovative design.

Honor, Merit and Citation awards will be given at the discretion of the jury. Winning projects will be showcased in the 2021-22 Celebrating Excellence in Wood Architecture book, an award video and our spring/summer edition of the Wood Design & Building magazine.

Projects built in the provinces and territories of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Yukon receive a sponsored (complimentary) submission by their regional Wood WORKS! program and are entered into both the Wood Design & Building awards and provincial Wood Design Awards.

All projects built in the period between January 1, 2018 and December 30th, 2021 are eligible for entry [except previous winning projects of the Wood Design & Building Awards]. Click here to start your online application. The deadline for submissions is January 14, 2022.
