Phyllis Lambert Prize

The prize honors Phyllis Lambert, architect and tutelary figure of architectural history and conservation, and founder of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, an internationally renowned institution with the goal of increasing public awareness and scholarly research of the role played by architecture in contemporary society.
The winner of the 2019 Phyllis Lambert Prize was Emily Turner’s dissertation, “Mission infrastructure development in the Canadian North, c. 1850-1920,” completed at the University of Edinburgh in 2018.
