L'Ordre des architectes veut une politique nationale
Info07
Campagne électorale ou pas, l'Ordre des architectes du Québec est prêt à tout pour enfin obtenir une politique nationale de l'architecture. C'est la troisième fois qu'un tel projet est sur la table; un livre blanc, contenant notamment les bases d'une politique, avait été déposé en 1982 et dans les années 90, une autre tentative avait échoué.

"You can sit in there, be surrounded by traffic, and get lost in your thoughts," Atkin said. According to Atkin, the city has come a long way in creating open spaces as inviting as this one.

Diamond Schmitt Architects | KWC Architects awarded Government Conference Centre rehabilitation project
Canadian Architect
The Government Conference Centre in Ottawa celebrated its 100th birthday in June 2012, on the heels of a heritage conservation study that outlined the extensive work needed on the building. The building has not had major work done to it since the 1970s and is considered to be in critical need of rehabilitation. Rather than carrying out the work piecemeal, heritage experts recommended a holistic approach, meaning emptying the building so the necessary work can get underway.

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.

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.

Public works: Finding new uses for old infrastructure
Torontoist
Urban infrastructure is made to last. Our roads, parking lots, bridges, and ports may crack a little, may lose a bit of sheen, but they'll never rot to nothing, or ever totally fade away. U.S.-based designers Sasaki Associates have created an innovative master plan for the city of Minsk, Belarus, that, if implemented, would transform a disused airport into a a residential, commercial, cultural, and ecological hot spot. This proposal to turn an out-of-use airport in Minsk into a mixed-use community echoes Downsview Park.
