The Newsletter of ARCHITECTURAL CONSERVANCY ONTARIO:
Working Centre awarded the A.K. Sculthorpe Award for Advocacy
"On October 11, about 175 heritage advocates came together at Junction Craft Brewing in Toronto (the 1930s Symes Road Destructor, brought back to life as a brewery) to celebrate ACO's annual Heritage Awards. It was a record year for the awards, with more nominations and more attendees than ever before, and as always, it was truly inspiring to hear the stories of each nominated and winning project. This year we waited until Awards Night to announce the winners, so the excitement was flowing. It was a challenging year for the jury, as there was a diverse array of excellent projects to consider."
