Modern, sustainable integration
OAA
It's a long way from margarine containers to award-winning home design, but that was the trajectory for Ottawa architect Jason Flynn. "I knew what I wanted to be when I was six years old," says the principal at Jason C. Flynn Architect. "My mom used to keep the margarine containers and I built houses with them. I'd spend hours doing it." Thirty-four years later, Flynn, now 40, is designing real-life homes, many of them infills, that are earning him applause as an emerging modernist with a commitment to sustainable design and a flair for integrating new homes into old neighbourhoods like Westboro and the Glebe.

Daily Commercial News

Unlike gold, which is found chemically pure, aluminum is tightly bonded to oxygen in the form of bauxite. The usefulness value of aluminum, however, skyrocketed because its use everywhere was made possible. Aluminum now features prominently as an indispensable material in architecture, engineering, construction, communications, consumer products, technology, transportation and other aspects of our daily lives.

Architects change recycling habits with design
CBC News
Architects and designers may be on the frontlines of the war against garbage, suggests a new University of British Columbia study, which found that people in "green buildings" are more likely to act in an environmentally responsible manner regardless of their past habits. A group of UBC psychology students used a hidden camera to record other students' recycling decisions at two Vancouver campus cafeterias: the Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability, a so-called "living laboratory" for sustainability research, and the Student Union Building, a relic from the late 1960s.
