With changing demographics, the multigenerational house comes of age
The Globe and Mail
Ramona Omidvar is part of a growing cohort of young professionals who expects to eventually share a home with her parents, as well as her two children, currently 2 and 5. The reason for blending the households isn't financial — both Omidvar and her husband, who asked not to be named, have good jobs, as do her parents. She worked with award-winning architecture firm Williamson Chong to contemporize the 2,760-square-foot Victorian to her taste — it's all crisp lines and fluid spaces.

Vers une politique nationale en architecture?
L'Hebdo Journal
La présidente de l'Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ), Nathalie Dion, était de passage mardi à Trois-Rivières pour échanger avec des acteurs clefs et des architectes de la région sur la pertinence d'une politique nationale de l'architecture. L'OAQ a interpellé publiquement tous les membres de l'Assemblée nationale du Québec sur la création d'une telle politique «qui permettrait au Québec de développer une vision cohérente et ambitieuse à cet égard et de marquer un virage majeur en matière de qualité de l'architecture et du cadre bâti.»

Winnipeg firm perfects doing more for less
The Globe and Mail
Since coming into existence just seven years ago, the Winnipeg firm known as 5468796 Architecture — 546, for short — has been deluged by awards, honours, fellowships and favourable write-ups in the building art's national and international press. The busy office run by co-founders Johanna Hurme and Sasa Radulovic is widely regarded as Canada's premiere emerging architectural practice — even though its designs have been realized, up to now, no farther than a stone’s throw from the intersection of Portage and Main.

Elgin County Railway Museum plans capital campaign for restoration
St. Thomas Times Journal
Five years after Elgin County Railway Museum unveiled an ambitious plan for its historic building, a new study puts the price today at almost $23.9 million. But the president of the museum says that with staging, the work is affordable. "I know it's ambitious," Jeremy Locke said. "But I think it's do-able." Locke says the plan is a blueprint of what needs to be done to preserve the 100-year-old building, constructed as a Michigan Central Railroad locomotive repair shop, and with what priority.

Marc-André Carignan: Montréal et sa chromophobie
Marc André Carignan
Pourquoi chromophobie ? Est-ce une mode ? Une question de goût ? Une question de coût? C'est tout de même dommage, surtout lorsqu'on tient compte du caractère hivernal de Montréal. Lorsque les feuilles vertes disparaissent du paysage et que le ciel bleu se fait discret durant la saison des grands froids, un peu de couleur ne ferait certainement pas de tort pour apporter un petit côté ludique à notre ville.

Creating new history hall a complex task, museum officials discover
Ottawa Citizen
Creating a 44,000-square-foot exhibit that tells the story of Canada, admits David Morrison, is "quite surprisingly complicated. There's an awful lot of people involved. There's an awful lot to remember." "We've got a lot of people to satisfy," chimes in Chantal Amyot. A lot, a lot, a lot. That could be the mantra these days for Morrison, who leads a 25-member team that's developing content for the Canadian Museum of History's signature exhibit, and Amyot, the project's director.
