Craven Road Studio wins Governor General's medal

The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture are awarded by the prestigious Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and recognise outstanding achievement in recently built projects by Canadian architects. Among the winners this time round is the marvellous Craven Road Studio by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects. Here's what the Institute says about it:
"This urban studio building was designed for study, display and storage. The bright space receives indirect illumination through a system of narrow light coffers surrounding the building’s perimeter."

Thanks to Lloyd Alter for the alert (Lloyd's own prefab project also won a GG)
