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.

The AFBC launched BC’s 100 Best Buildings Contest at Buildex 2014.  The purpose of the contest was to recognize the impact and influence that buildings have had in BC. You were invited to share and celebrate your favourite building regardless of purpose, age or materials with each submission including a photograph of the building, its address  and its name.

At the close of voting at IDSWest, on September 28 , the top 25 in each region were identified.  A judging panel, including Michael Kluckner, author of Vanishing BC and noted heritage expert, Shelley Fralic, journalist & owner of a heritage house, and David Hewitt, AFBC Chair and noted architect will decide which buildings make up the top 3 from each region.  Watch here to see which  buildings will win!
