Fifth Town Artisan Cheese Factory has won the Staff Choice Design Exchange Award. The awards were announced on November 25, 2008 at a gala dinner held on the historic Trading Floor at the Design Exchange (DX), Canada s design museum. Established in 1991, the Design Exchange Awards are the only Canadian multi-disciplinary design competition to judge designers work on commercial effectiveness. Presented by Canadian Business Magazine, the Awards support the DXs mandate to foster business and public understanding of the impact of design excellence on the economy and businesses. A few weeks ago, Fifth Town also won the Green Building Design Award from Wood WORKS! and yesterday, an Award of Excellence from the Canadian GeoExchange Coalition.
An exhibition showcasing all finalist projects will be on view at DX until March 2009 and the project can be viewed in the December issue of Canadian Business Magazine. For more information see
