Naama Blonder's team named as honoree for OAA's SHIFT challenge


Congratulations to Naama Blonder, Adjunct Professor and Architect/co-founder of Smart Density, and her team for their project The Mini Mid-Rise, an honoree for this year’s SHIFT Challenge.

The Ontario Association of Architects’ (OAA’s) 2021 SHIFT Resiliency/Architecture Challenge sought unique, inventive ideas that would promote public dialogue, shift public consciousness, affect society, and drive change.

The reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has tested our resilience as individuals, as professionals, as families, and as community members. The five selected projects illustrate how architects, interns, student associates and their teams harnessed their architectural-thinking powers and responded creatively to this critical concept—resiliency.
