Announcing the 2016 Mayor's Design Award Winners!
The best in design around Denver
Join us in celebrating the best in design around Denver! Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Brad Buchanan, executive director of Denver Community Planning and Development, will honor 17 projects for excellence in architecture, design and place-making during the 2016 Mayor’s Design Awards ceremony Thursday, November 10 at 6 p.m. at the Chambers Grant Salon of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
“The theme that emerged from this year’s field of winners is transformation,” Mayor Hancock said. “The impact that these projects have made on their streets, their neighborhoods, and the city will be felt for years to come. The owners and their project teams have shown a clear commitment to design with intention, with results that we can all take pride in.”
Since 2005, the awards have been presented to Denver homeowners, business owners, nonprofits, artists and others for their creative contributions to the public realm through innovative design. Winners can range from community placemaking projects to adaptive reuse of historic structures to single-family residences to major mixed-use downtown buildings. Each brings something special to Denver’s unique visual fabric and speaks to our collective commitment to building healthy, sustainable communities.
The event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow. For more information on the event and the awards, visit DenverGov.org/MDA.
