Luc Bouliane, MRAIC, a Toronto architect whose designs are inspired by the geology of Northern Ontario, will receive the 2018 Young Architect Award of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).

Recent projects include the 2015 expansion and renovation of the National Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, in Halifax, NS, (with architect David J. Agro). In Toronto, they include the Bensimon Byrne ad agency in the CBC Building (2016); renovations to the York University Student Centre (2012), and the widely published Relmar Houses in Toronto (2015), awarded a Tucker Design Award for excellence in the use of natural stone.

The RAIC Young Architect Award recognizes architects 40 years or younger for excellence in design, leadership, and service to the profession. The award is intended to inspire other young architects to become licensed and to strive for excellence in their work.

The award will be presented at the RAIC/AANB Festival of Architecture which takes place in Saint John, NB from May 30 to June 2.
