Architect Bruce Kuwabara honoured with RAIC medal

Canadian architect Bruce Kuwabara has been awarded the 2006 Gold Medal by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. The prize, handed out at the annual RAIC Festival in Vancouver on June 14, honours not only Kuwabara's craft and design, but also his work in schools to educate young people about the field.

Kuwabara is a member of Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects (KPMB), one of Canada's leading design practices, known for significant contributions to projects such as the Art Gallery of Ontario Stage III expansion, the Celia Franca Training Centre for the National Ballet School of Canada, and the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, all in Toronto.

Kuwabara is currently involved with redesigning the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa and Festival Tower for the Toronto International Film Festival Group.
