Azure Magazine Names Top Ten Canadian Architecture

We couldn't be more pleased to have read Azure Magazine's Top Ten for 2018 and find out that CFMS was part of the team for two of the projects!

York University's Student Centre was named the Best Collaborative Project.  As Azure Magazine says:

Why we like it: By working closely with the students who would ultimately use the space, CannonDesign has delivered a building that is visually stunning, completely accessible and, as the firm itself puts it, “one of the most inclusive university buildings in the world.”

Seneca College's Odeyto Indigenous Centre was named the Best Implementation of Native Building Practices.  As Azure Magazine says:

Why we like it: In a year when Canada’s contribution to the Venice Biennale focused on Indigenous architecture, Odeyto pays more than lip service to the implementation of Native building practices, giving gorgeous physical form to an important – and long-neglected – aesthetic.

Well done to the entire teams involved in both projects, especially CannonDesign (for York U's Student Centre) and Gow Hastings/Two Row Architect  (for Seneca's Odeyto Indigenous Centre) for these stunning and ground breaking projects sure to make a difference for future generations!
