Project of the Year
Institutional—Over $50 Million
Skill and careful planning are undoubtedly crucial to building a top project, but patience may be the defining virtue of the 2015 Project of the Year, the Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts at Mount Royal University. First conceived back in 1999, the project broke ground in 2011, and construction continued until it was completed—on schedule and on budget, it should be note—earlier this year. In August, the curtain officially rose on the first new performance hall in Calgary in three decades.
