Nine Yards Studio receives national recognition
Nine Yards Studio has received national recognition from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada for their Urban Beehive Project Located in Charlottetown. The project has been selected to receive a medal under the Community Initiatives category in the 2018 National Urban Design Awards.
The Urban Design Awards jury comments, “The innovative Urban Beehive Project shows how urban design can help address, educate, and inspire people to protect and conserve the environment. It is a model for the role of architecture in starting a dialogue on a locally important environmental issue. In addition to the design and building of playful and engaging forms, the project exhibits the expanded role of the designer (in a non-profit capacity) as steward and educator.”
The project can be found at the PEI Farm Centre in Charlottetown adjacent to the Confederation trail. The medal will be awarded on January 7th at the Ottawa Art Gallery.
