Fernie Courthouse Wins Best Building Contest for The Interior Region
Winners - Best Building Contest
Architecture Foundation of British Columbia
The contest, which marked 100 years of architecture as a profession in BC, received more than 450 nominations from around the world. People were then invited to vote online for their favourite buildings, identifying the most popular, and the top 25 in each of the four regions — Interior, Vancouver Island, Northern, Southern. From those top 25, a panel of judges met to assess the nominations against the criteria of appearance, sentimental value, historical significance and originality.
