Presented by the National Trust for Canada and RAIC, the honorable prize distinguishes outstanding 20th-century Canadian architectural landmarks for their enduring excellence and national significance through the years.
Located on 20 Grosvenor Street in the heart of downtown, the Toronto Central YMCA has been popular since the day it opened in 1984. The three-member prize jury described the building as a seminal work of Diamond Schmitt Architects, and they selected the project “not only for its remarkable design qualities but also for its generous stance as a welcoming urban neighbor and humanist intervention” in the city.
