The Architecture Foundation of BC was conceived by a group of senior BC architects in 1999 to recognize and encourage excellence in architecture. Incorporated in early 2001, the Foundation was formally registered as a public foundation on March 1, 2001. Since then the Foundation has held various programs and fundraising events to build a fund from which it can provide grants to support and fulfill its mission to promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of architecture in British Columbia.
