Carleton Scholars Celebrated by Local Architect William Teron

Ottawa – From the practicality of David King’s Quaker Meeting House— a light-filled, multi-purpose community space snuggled among existing Chinatown buildings—to Vance Fok’s fantastical use of recycled water bottles to create islands around Venice that filter water and create new landscape infrastructure, the work of the 2011 Teron Scholars displays the art and science of architecture.

This year’s Teron Scholars were presented with their awards by William Teron, founder of the Teron Group of Companies and the “father of Kanata”. Eight students were awarded Teron Scholar prizes with a further eight receiving honorary mentions.

“The submissions this year were exemplary,” said Teron, honorary fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and officer of the Order of Canada. “The students displayed a keen understanding of the disciplines that are key to providing holistic architecture and urbanism. The Teron Scholars Program is designed to increase the quality and quantity of lead architects in Canada and I think we’ve identified some future leaders of the industry right here in Ottawa.”

“Carleton has long benefited from involvement of the Teron family,” said Marco Frascari, director of the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism. “The establishment of the Teron Scholars Program provides added incentive for architecture students to push their creative and technical boundaries.”
