2021 Projects

The Ontario Association of Architects’ (OAA’s) 2021 SHIFT Resiliency/Architecture Challenge sought unique, inventive ideas that would promote public dialogue, shift public consciousness, affect society, and drive change.

The reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has tested our resilience as individuals, as professionals, as families, and as community members. The five selected projects illustrate how architects, interns, student associates and their teams harnessed their architectural-thinking powers and responded creatively to this critical concept—resiliency.

The five selections highlighted below were chosen by a jury to represent SHIFT’s 2021 class and will be presented as part of the 2021 OAA virtual Conference taking place from May 17- May 21, 2021. Join us for the SHIFT Awards and presentations virtual event on Thursday, May 20 at 4:30 pm EDT.
