The 2014 AZ Awards: People’s Choice Selections

The 2014 AZ Awards: People’s Choice Selections

In April, we asked you to vote on your favourite finalists in the fourth annual AZ Awards, and at Friday’s Gala in Toronto, your choices were finally revealed. From as far away as Mumbai and São Paulo, these are the winners of the 2014 People’s Choice Awards.

The jury’s choices weren’t the only celebrants at the AZ Awards Gala held at Toronto’s Evergreen Brick Works last Friday; it was an occasion to recognize the recipients of the People’s Choice Awards as well. And while there were a few projects the voters and the jury could agree on – Interface’s Net Effect carpet tiles for Best Interior Product, and REX’s Media Headquarters and Scott Sullivan’s Tangent Clock in the Concepts categories – for the most part Azure readers broke with our panel of experts. It’s a poignant reminder that the jury’s job is a difficult one, and the projects that took home a trophy faced stiff competition.
