2019 Projects

The Ontario Association of Architects’ (OAA’s) 2019 SHIFT Infrastructure/Architecture Challenge sought unique, inventive ideas that would promote public dialogue, shift public consciousness, affect society, and drive change.

The seven selections and four honourable mentions highlighted below were chosen by a jury to represent SHIFT’s inaugural class. Their summaries, along with the case studies in the OAA’s biweekly e-newsletter, Making the SHIFT, illustrate how architects approached the program’s initial theme of “infrastructure,” exploring the beginning of the true potential of this exciting program.
