2007 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients
Janis Kravis, of Janis Kravis Consultants Inc. in North York, has worked in environmental architecture since 1961. He has consulted with governments, corporations, individuals and communities to reduce their environmental impact and to work toward restoration and sustainability. He also formed the “Healthy Buildings Task Force” at the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. He practices energy and resource conservation, the design of healthy buildings and social and environmental responsibility. He is a proponent and practitioner of the Integrated Design Process that looks at a building as a whole system rather than the sum of its parts.
Peter Love, formerly Ontario’s Chief Energy Conservation Officer, has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in the area of energy efficiency. As the Executive Director of the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance, he was a leading national advocate for energy efficiency and its related benefits to the economy and the environment. No stranger to the concept of a “cultural shift,” early in his career, Mr. Love worked as a project coordinator for Pollution Probe with the team that developed the concept “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.”
Doug Pollard ran his architectural practice in Toronto for thirty years prior to joining the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation in 1998 as a senior researcher in sustainable community planning. His practice focused on housing and small institutional projects demonstrating the potential for an intelligent use of land, resources, and finances and optimizing opportunities for user participation in the design process. He chairs the National Housing Research Committee’s working group on sustainable communities, which is exploring and developing the business case for sustainable development.
