Ralph Stern to leave as University of Manitoba architecture dean

Ralph Stern says he will step down as dean of architecture at the University of Manitoba at the end of his term, weeks after a national association representing faculty members recommended that he be replaced. Stern issued a written statement on Friday saying he will not seek reappointment as dean. He said he will continue to work in the faculty as a professor. "I have given my decision careful consideration and believe this is the best course of action for me personally and professionally," he wrote.

Radio-Canada
Le professeur Ralph Stern affirme qu'il démissionnera de son poste de doyen de la Faculté d'architecture de l'Université du Manitoba à la fin de son mandat.

Home is where their art is: Inside the creative spaces of Canadian architects
The Globe and Mail
For many architects, a career in building often begins with the personal, their own residences providing an opportunity to test out new ideas and techniques and serving as calling cards to prospective clients.

Le Phare n'allume pas les étudiants en architecture
La Presse
Le projet du Phare n'en finit plus de susciter la désapprobation dans les milieux architecturaux. Au tour de 218 étudiants en architecture et en design urbain de l'Université Laval de monter aux barricades, qualifiant de «délire» ce «bunker surmonté d'une tour démesurée».

The Globe and Mail
In the eight years since Johanna Hurme and Sasa Radulovic founded it, the Winnipeg firm known as 5468796 Architecture (or 546 for short) has earned fame in Canada and abroad for its signature brand of fresh, practical, intelligent modernism. The practice has also acquired a reputation for doing notably deft designs in difficult spots, and often within very tight budgets. Until now, however, Ms. Hurme, Mr. Radulovic and their colleagues have not had an opportunity to show what they can do beyond a stone’s throw from the intersection of Portage and Main.

John Ivison: Tories should move site of 'brutalist' anti-communism memorial — but they won't
National Post
A stroll west from the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., is a tutorial in American history — its monuments and memorials tell of its heroes, its victories and even its defeats, from Washington, through the Second World War, to Martin Luther King; from Korea and Vietnam to Lincoln. On a street corner five blocks or so north of the National Mall, there is a modest three metre high statue of the Goddess of Democracy that commemorates the Victims of Communism.
