Details of the new Challenge program will not be announced until spring 2018 but its goal will be to highlight the contribution architects and architecture bring to addressing key societal issues. The program will invite Ontario-based individuals and/or teams, including students, with architectural backgrounds and expertise to respond to an identified area of concern using their skills and insights.
Other key changes to the program included the sunsetting of the Concepts, Sustainable Design and Landmark Awards.
With the rollout of the new two-year cycle, the next opportunity after this to compete for an OAA Design Excellence Award will be 2020.
