AZ Awards are issued to designers and architects that have demonstrated exceptional creativity in achieving best concept and product designs.

Canada’s Sugar Beach was built as part of Toronto’s waterfront revitalization. Located at the foot of lower Jarvis Street, south of Queens Quay, Canada’s Sugar Beach transformed a former industrial area into a fun, dynamic space.
Designed by Claude Cormier + Associés, the park’s features include a number of Muskoka chairs, signature pink umbrellas, soft sand and an interactive water feature embedded in a granite maple leaf, which makes cooling off fun for adults and children.
