Earlier this week, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada announced that 5468796 Architecture Inc. will be the first recipient of the the Emerging Architectural Practice Award now in its first year.  The firm is a Winnipeg-based collaborative studio of 12 young professionals with Johanna Hurme, MRAIC, Sasa Radulovic, MRAIC, and Colin Neufeld, MRAIC leading the office.  The firm operates under the principle that each project, while keeping to the parameters of cost, client expectations and site restrictions, must "advance architecture in some way".

The jury commended the firm for "undeniably helping reshape [the architectural landscape]" and creating "refreshing and important" work that is exudes "typological daring, visual playfulness and intellectual rigour".  Since the firm's founding in 2007, it has participated in a breadth of architectural projects from urban pavilions to low income housing to multi-use commercial buildings.

In addition to the Emerging Architectural Practice Award granted by the RAIC, the firm has also won a Governor General's Medal in Architecture, an RAIC Award of Excellence, and recognition from publications such as the Architectural Review and Canadian Architect.  The firm's practioners are also involved professorships at the University of Manitoba and have participating in global exhibitions such as the 2012 Migrating Landscapes for the Venice Biennale in Architecture.

The award will be granted at a dinner and gala on June 7, 2013 during the 2013 RAIC-NSAA Festival of Architecture taking place from June 5-8, 2013 at the Halifax Marriott Habourfront.  More information can be found here.
