Vote on Toronto’s best new architecture for this year’s Pug Awards

The time has come again for architecture buffs (or bored Internet users) to vote in the annual Pug Awards, Toronto’s people’s choice awards for architecture. Last year, the TIFF Bell Lightbox won in the commercial category and the 75 Portland building won the residential prize, and this year there are some similarly high-profile projects in the mix: the Ritz-Carlton, the Shops of Summerhill and the One Bedford condo building. However, we’re disappointed to see that many of the candidates have a certain tall, glassy sameness about them. Head to the Pug website to vote “love it,” “like it” or “hate it” on each of the 44 nominees and help choose which among them will receive this, er, lovely trophy.
