Heritage-building victory cast in granite
Winnipeg Free Press
The Workers Compensation Board has spent three years and $14 million to ensure its downtown office building looks precisely the same as it did before. To heritage advocates, this is a victory. More than 4,000 black granite slabs have been re-affixed to the WCB's 54-year-old headquarters on Broadway as part of an effort to solve a problem common to other stone-clad structures built in Winnipeg from the late 1950s to the early 1970s.

After 79 years, the Cascades of Time Garden is a delight for flora fans
The Vancouver Sun
It's a tiny patch of floral tranquility in one of the most beautiful parks in Canada. While the streets of the Banff National Park townsite are virtually awash with 3.5 million visitors a year, the Cascades of Time Garden located at the end of Banff Avenue and on the way to the Banff Springs Hotel offers a surprising break from the frenetic pace. "They commissioned Walter Beckett, an Ontario architect, and what is a bit unusual about this project was Beckett had to plan for not only the building but the landscape," said Steve Malins, a spokesman for Banff National Park.

New Seoul landmark stirs debate: Architectural accomplishment or landing of ugly spaceship?
Canada.com
A curvy futuristic $450 million building meant to remake Seoul into a global design capital opened to the South Korean public after years of debate about its impact on a historic city precinct. And not everyone is happy with the outcome. Designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid, the Dongdaemun Design Plaza is a stark contrast to its neighbourhood, which is better known in Seoul for its links to a royal dynasty that ruled for half a millennium and as home to one of the city's oldest markets.

The building has not had major work done to it since the 1970s and is considered to be in critical need of rehabilitation.

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.

Design was for CFL team — but not the Calgary Stampeders
Calgary Sun
As many expected, the "New Calgary Stadium" renderings, which had some locals excited to get a sneak-peek at plans for the Calgary Stampeders' new digs after a pair of graphics showing a new multi-purpose football/soccer stadium graced the Internet, are that of an old project with CFL ties. CEI Architecture developed the concept for a 28,000-seat stadium, according to its website, back in 2010 for a confidential client in a confidential location "as part of a new North American sports franchise."
