This year’s edition of the AZ Awards received a remarkable 1,175 entries from 50 countries, each one an exciting example of the design excellence that the annual competition has become known for. Last month, our panel of industry experts – Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne, founding principal of Morphosis; Pat Hanson, architect and founding partner of Toronto’s gh3*; Matt Carr, industrial designer and VP of Design at Umbra; Italian architect Stefano Pujatti, director of Italy- and Canada-based firm Elasticospa; and award-winning Toronto designer Johnson Chou – narrowed the field, selecting 68 outstanding finalists.
View the 2019 finalists online for your favourite in each of the 20 categories. Voting will be open until May 3. The People’s Choice and the jury-selected winners will be announced during the AZ Awards Gala at Toronto’s historic Evergreen Brick Works on June 21. All 68 finalists will be featured in Azure’s July/August issue, on newsstands late June.
