Ottawa architect prepares Chaudiere Island redevelopment vision
Ottawa Business Journal
Imagine letting the Crown Jewels gather dust in an attic. As far as Mark Brandt is concerned, that's pretty much what's happened to Chaudiere Island. "It is an area of Canadian historical significance that cannot be overstated," says Mr. Brandt, an Ottawa architect who heads a volunteer group called Vision Chaudiere that wants the site redeveloped. "It's the glue between the two sides of the river. It's an undiscovered paradise. Most people just sort of whiz by in their cars and don't really see what’s there."

Eye-catching, barrel-vault roof sets this modernist house apart
The Globe and Mail
It started with a little brochure landing on a desk. The desk belonged to Guelph, ON, architect Richard (Dick) Pagani. The brochure, which caught the young man's eye, illustrated how to build an eye-catching barrel-vault roof. Put out by the Fir Plywood Institute of Canada, the hope was to get architects interested in innovative uses for British Columbia wood products, and it worked, as it was carefully filed away by the Guelph native for future use.

The evolving role of contemporary architecture
Sourceable
When starting a new project, architect Manuelle Gautrand starts with a blank page and a sense of complete design freedom. While the Parisian architect lives and works in a very historic city, where many people are afraid of the "new" damaging the "old," she is a risk taker who understands that while retaining history and culture through traditional architecture is crucial, contemporary design must also be implemented in the same space for a city to evolve.
