    AN OSCAR FOR ARCHITECTURE?

    Movies are not the only art form receiving praise at Cannes festivals. Last month, the Marché International des Professionels de l'Immobilier (MIPIM) met there to celebrate achievements in property development. Receiving the Special Jury Prize was the Canadian firm Bing Thom Architects for the Surrey Central City project, a mixed-use development that integrates a regional shopping mall with a major university. Next week we'll see why Bing Thom received this "Oscar" of the property industry. (Photo by Nic LeHoux.)
