2021-22 Winning Projects Announced – Wood Design & Building Awards! 

Wood Design & Building magazine has announced the winning projects from the coveted Wood Design & Building Awards program.

The influential awards program recognizes and celebrates the outstanding work of visionaries around the world who achieve excellence in wood architecture.

The awards this year showcase an eclectic mix of structures. Winners include a social housing apartment in Spain, a ski club in Canada, and a flagship restaurant for a major chain fast food chain in the U.S. Also among the winners is the first Passive House–certified community center in Canada. This year, more than ever, it is apparent that architects and engineers are designing with sustainability in mind.

A new addition to this year’s program is the ‘Against the Grain’ award. This award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the wood industry. This year’s inaugural recipient is Dr. Nancy Mackin. Her architectural mandate—that each building can contribute to environmental and cultural resilience—is exemplified in the Tsawwassen First Nation Youth Centre. Dr. Mackin included the Tsawwassen First Nation community in many architectural decisions and invited Tsawwassen artists to design both interior and exterior elements of the Center.
