Competition Entries

At BROWN+STOREY, we believe strongly in the value of juried competitions, both as a way to discover and elevate new ideas into our urban dialogue, and as an approach that can produce the conceptual foundation for a final built design.

We have had the opportunity to develop a number of our competition designs into successful built projects, including the St. George Street Revitalization and the Ashbridges Bay Perimeter Landscape.
