June 29, 2022—It was a pleasure hosting the 2022 Natural Stone Institute Mini-Study Tour in our hometown of Toronto. We had a great time welcoming members to our office, giving them the chance to meet our team and see what we do best!
The Natural Stone Institute hosted a prestigious industry event over three days as we honoured 8 recipients of the Tucker Design Awards, and Tod Williams and Billie Tsien of TWBTA as the 2022 recipient of the Bybee Prize. PICCO has had the privilege of working with TWBTA on successful projects like The Barnes Foundation. The Bybee Prize is our industry’s lifetime achievement award for design professionals who have attained a body of work illustrated by outstanding use of natural stone.
PICCO also hosted a mini-architectural study tour celebrating world-class stone projects around Toronto. We visited York Marble, PICCO, CIOT, Aga Khan Museum, Casa Loma, Toronto Old City Hall, and the Distillery District. We had to skip Ireland Park due to typical Toronto traffic!
It was a great event enjoyed by all!
