David Zeibin, MArch’08, and Mike Wartman, MArch’08, was recently honoured with two top awards in the 2016 City of Edmonton Infill Design Competition. The company was Best in Class for the Single Detached home category, and Best Overall in the entire competition. MIZA’s team also included intern Warren
Scheske (BA’09, MArch’14). Infill development usually earmarks undeveloped urban land for construction projects and is a contentious topic in Edmonton. The Infill Design Competition showcased design innovation and redirected the conversation toward beneficial infill development. MIZA’s entry, titled SlimCity, describes a 17-foot wide “skinny” house designed with environmental features, long-term flexibility for a variety of users, and the capacity to quadruple the number of people living on the site.
