Toronto-based MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects (MJMA) has been selected to receive the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada's (RAIC) 2016 Architectural Firm Award. Known for their work in community recreation and sports buildings, the more than 50-person practice was chosen by the jury for their "wellness approach" to design and contribution to the "broader communities in which the projects are located."

MJMA has consistently achieved a very high quality of architecture and bold clarity throughout its large body of work,” said the five-member jury. “In addition to the spectacular spatial qualities, the architecture exhibits a clear problem-solving approach.

“MJMA has developed an impressive body of work that demonstrates what can be achieved with everyday programs and budgets,” said RAIC President Allan Teramura, FRAIC. “They are to be commended for their commitment to the creation of vivid and engaging civic spaces accessible to everyone.”
