Spadina Wavedeck nominated for Brit Insurance Design Awards 2009
West 8 + DTAH’s recently completed Spadina Wave Deck for Waterfront Toronto has been nominated for this year’s Brit Insurance Design Awards. Brit Insurance Design Awards is the Design Museum London’s annual exploration of the most innovative, interesting and forward looking new work in design of all kinds.
Selected from around the world, Brit Insurance Design Awards presents around 100 projects nominated by a group of internationally respected design experts, curators, critics, practitioners and enthusiasts. These projects fall within seven categories: architecture, fashion, furniture, graphics, interactive, product and transport. An international jury, chaired by Alan Yentob and including the designer and environmentalist Karen Blincoe and the architect Peter Cook, will select category winners as well as an overall winner.
The shortlist will be on show at the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year Exhibition from 12 February until 14 June 2009. The category winners will be announced on 24 February and the overall winner will be awarded at the Awards Dinner on 18 March at the Design Museum London.
