Vaughan Urban Design Awards
The Vaughan Urban Design Awards recognize and promote local development initiatives that exemplify excellence in urban design, architecture, landscape architecture, public art and environmental stewardship within Vaughan.
The awards reflect the community’s commitment to quality and innovation in city building.
Every five years, the City of Vaughan invites urban designers, architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers, developers, contractors, landowners and the general public to submit projects for consideration for the Vaughan Urban Design Awards. Submissions were accepted from May to September 2022.
Since the inception of the Vaughan Urban Design Awards in 2008, 36 projects have been awarded.
