AIA Dallas Built Design Awards Juror Colin Neufeld
The AIA Dallas Design Awards Committee is pleased to announce Colin Neufeld of 5468796 Architecture as a juror for the 2015 Built Design Awards.
Colin Neufeld is a principal at Winnipeg-based 5468796 Architecture, a collaborative studio that challenges convention at many scales and is leading a new wave of urban contemporary architecture. Born, raised, and educated in Winnipeg, Colin brings a distinctly vernacular flavor to the innovative office. Established in 2007, the firm pursues opportunities for architectural exploration within any budget, and advocates that every client, user, and civic environment deserves an outcome that advances architecture. The practice has won numerous awards: 2011 Design Vanguard Award (from Architectural Record), WAN 21 for 21 Award Winner; and, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) Emerging Architectural Practice Award. Recent project recognitions include Progressive Architecture Awards, an Architizer A+ Award, an AR Future Projects Award, and several RAIC Awards of Excellence.
In 2012, 5468796 Architecture co-curated Migrating Landscapes, Canada’s official entry to the Venice Biennale in Architecture. And in 2013, the practice was selected by the Canada Council for the Arts as recipients of the Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture.
We look forward to Colin’s insight and involvement in this year's Design Awards Program.
