The Governor General of Canada issued the following statement in honouring recipients of medals in architecture:
“The recipients of the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture have distinguished themselves as visionary Canadian architects. They have designed spaces where communities are forged, memories are enshrined and identity is created in-built form. Few architects are able to realize their philosophies so fully in practice and in such diversity of project type and geography.”
His Excellency the Right Honourable, David Johnston, C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D., Governor General of Canada, May 8, 2012.
