Avenir du Colisée: des experts se prononcent
La Presse
Saviez-vous que le Forum de Mont-réal et le Maple Leaf Gardens de Toronto ont été désignés lieux historiques nationaux du Canada? Même reconvertis à d'autres vocations que celle d'aréna, les deux édifices sportifs emblématiques bénéficient d'une reconnaissance et d'une protection historique, au même titre que les fortifications de Québec, le parc Forillon ou le fort Chambly. Pour l'historien Réjean Lemoine, le Colisée est «emblématique de Québec». Selon lui, il existe une foule de raisons pour lesquelles le vieux Colisée mériterait d'être protégé.

Campus renewal project in Ontario goes a step beyond lean
The Globe and Mail
Architects, construction companies and their clients normally exist in silos, waiting for the other to finish their work. Yet there's a design process that allows the three to work together, but it requires them in a sense to work in reverse. Called integrated project delivery (IPD), it has a growing number of converts, at least judging from the palpable enthusiasm at one design meeting for a new 360-room student residence and academic building at St. Jerome's University.

Tracing the overnight success of Toronto's College Park, and why it's worth a visit
National Post
The neighbourhood surrounding College Park has come into its own since the glory days of the Eaton Auditorium. It began reinventing itself after the famed Eaton’s College Street store closed its doors in the 1970s and shoppers ventured south to the Eaton Centre. By the 1980s, the new College Park had offices, boutiques, a 10-storey rental apartment building, the courthouse and a subway concourse — with the original Art Deco architecture remaining intact.

E&E Publishing
It's been nearly a century and a half since steel replaced wood as the primary material of ships, bridges and other large infrastructure manufactured by the developed world. But progress is not always linear — sometimes, it doubles back. A small but committed cadre of architects, firms and government agencies are now re-examining the case for wood as a building material and finding it not just feasible, but perhaps more sustainable than conventional materials.
