Jury members were unanimous in their opinions about the choice of finalists. Gomez- Pimienta was emphatic that, “I very much enjoyed the honour of participating as chair of the jury for the Architecture Awards of Excellence of the Quebec Order of architects. The selection process was sometimes difficult given the high quality of the entrants. In all cases, we were unanimous in our choice of finalists and winners.” The jury chair also stated that the jury valued the overall quality of the projects submitted, which was expressed through the diversity of architectural models and imagination and the care taken in completing all the projects. “It should not be forgotten that, behind all good projects, there is a good architect and a good client! The projects we have just seen attest to the fact that Quebec architecture is in the best of health. It also means that we must always be more critical and rigorous when looking at
Quebec architecture,” Gomez-Pimienta concluded.
