Experts: More 'good' architecture can bring new energy to Ottawa
Ottawa Citizen
Boxy high-rises. Huge parking lots and garages. These kinds of functional, concrete structures are everywhere, it seems: Think Tunney's Pasture, or some of the behemoths in Ottawa's downtown. But they aren't on postcards. Today's architects can put beauty and functionality together, and that makes for a more engaging urban environment, according to Bill Birdsell, president of the Ontario Association of Architects.

Architecture exhibition explores discipline's history, core elements
Calgary Herald
In an era of "starchitects," Rem Koolhaas, who merits mention as one himself, wants to strip the discipline to its barest elements, bypassing the cult of personality and any architectural grandiosity. Koolhaas had no time to waste as he hurriedly but efficiently guided visitors through a one-hour tour of his exhibit, Elements of Architecture, shortly before it opened last weekend as part of the Venice Biennale's 14th International Architecture Exhibit.

Phase one of River City, a condo development in the West Don Lands, took home the People's Choice Award for the best residential building completed last year.

Canadian Pavilion examines move 'from igloos to internet' in Inuit communities
Dezeen
Curated by Canadian studio Lateral Office, the Arctic Adaptions exhibition explores the transition "from igloos to internet" in Nunavut, which has only been part of Canada for 15 years and remains one of the least densely populated regions in the world. Using interactive models and photography, the curators set out to question whether architecture and infrastructure can also help to shape these Arctic settlements into modern cities without sacrificing their unique identity.

Modern design turns organic as designers play with form and function
The Globe and Mail
Form follows function — the central tenant of modern architecture — is an idea most often employed to justify cheap, ruthlessly efficient factories and office buildings. But for everyday living, it's too rigid. A kitchen should be suitable for cooking, sure, but can't the space also reflect the more complex, less rational things that happen within: family gatherings, romance, heartbreak? Does a clinical, all-white, ruthlessly organized space really suit?

Reimagining Winnipeg: What these fearless architects can teach the rest of Canada
The Globe and Mail
If you are a young English-Canadian architect with ambitions to design innovative buildings, the route to success can be long and circuitous. After working in the right offices and completing an arduous licensing process, you may teach, and take whatever work you can get renovating kitchens and houses. This is why too many Canadian architects are stuck in a prison of polished concrete, making beautiful buildings for the very few. The three partners of 5468796 have demolished that model.
