The Pug Awards
Since arvin kindly mentioned Toronto architecture and how it’s celebrated, I thought I should mention it’s that time of year again to vote for the Pug awards. The Pugs are The People’s Choice Awards for Architecture in the city of Toronto, formerly known as the Fugly’s and then the Pugly’s, they are there for the people to voice their concern about how ugly (or not) their city looks. Go ahead and vote now.
From the site,
Do you care what Toronto looks like. Do you like the way it’s being developed – from the new condominiums and institutional buildings to the parks, streets and public spaces? If you could change anything, what would you change? And don’t say nothing because there is an outlet for your accolades and a pulpit for your disdain. It’s called the Pug Awards – The People’s Choice Awards for Architecture – and it’s about recognizing the best & worst urban/architectural elements in Toronto. It’s open to the public, and it’s your chance to voice your opinion about your city.
