TWENTY JURY WINNERS and their team mem­bers left Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works with some­thing to add to their of­fice shelves: a matte-black steel tro­phy in the shape of an A and a Z, de­signed by Philippe Malouin. The cus­tom-made ob­ject was pre­sented on June 23 at the AZ Awards Gala, where some 500 guests – including pro­fes­sion­als from Toronto and abroad, some at­tend­ing from as far away as Poland and China – mixed and min­gled. Ital­ian ar­chi­tect Mas­si­m­il­iano Fuk­sas was in the room as the event’s hon­oured guest. The awards show was fol­lowed up by a food- and wine-fu­elled party. Rev­ellers headed off at the end of the night with Tyvek swag bags, pro­duced for the event by Ital­ian brand Essent’ial.

“As ar­chi­tects we have to de­sign in a way that ad­vo­cates for peace rather than war. We need to de­sign to­wards a world that is with­out bor­ders and is more just.” – Guest of hon­our, Mas­si­m­il­iano Fuk­sas
