Architecture requires leadership skills
Journal of Commerce
Every profession sees itself as a leader. Architecture is no exception. The realization of a building requires a formidable team and each member of the team is in a position of leadership during some of the phases of the project. For example: at the programming stage, the owner is in the lead; during the development permit stage, it can be argued that the municipality's planning personnel is in the lead; during the design stage, the architect leads; during construction, the builder leads.

Vancouver Art Gallery will be 'very reflective' of city
CBC News
The internationally-renowned architecture firm behind the new Vancouver Art Galley says it's getting to know the city so it can design a building that will reflect the community and become a gathering space. "A museum is always a project that addresses the general community," said Christine Binswanger, senior partner at Herzog & de Meuron based in Switzerland. "It's nothing elitist, it's something very connecting."

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao: We're hoping for the Guggenheim effect
Winnipeg Free Press
The big attraction in the Basque Country's largest city is the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a Frank Gehry-designed structure immediately hailed as one of the world's most important architectural works when it opened, on time and on budget, in 1997. The Guggenheim is the best-known example of so-called destination architecture. Tourists from all over western Europe fly to Bilbao, a once-obscure industrial centre, simply to spend a few hours at the Guggenheim and maybe explore a bit of the rest of the town.

Eco-buildings may be good for the planet — but what about occupants?
Maclean's
When Toronto's Superkül architecture firm was asked to build a sleek modernist house in Mulmur, ON, the designers used a decidedly unscientific method to select the materials. They asked the client to handle and sniff one building product after another, as they watched for adverse reactions. Sometimes all it took was pulling an item out of its box, says Andre D'Elia, a principal at the firm. Most of the no-nos involved recycled content; first-generation materials worked best.

Take a tour of Gehry-designed biodiversity museum in Panama City
Canada.com
Canadian architect Frank Gehry's latest jaw-dropping museum opened in Panama City after years of delays. Gehry is one of Canada's most famous architects, and the Panama museum of biodiversity has the same curved metal walls and integration of raw materials exemplified in his recent redesign of the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. But it's painted in bright hues to match its tropical setting and includes more concrete than Canadian wood.

Vancouver's Maritime Museum: A stunning icon of mid-century modernism
Scout Magazine
Opened in 1959, the Vancouver Maritime Museum is one of the most gorgeous pieces of mid-century modernist design in the city, not to mention one of the most comprehensive displays of this Pacific Northwest's storied maritime history. The site was built to coincide with provincial centennial celebrations the year before, commemorating the establishment of the colony of British Columbia in 1858.

Building CMHR: A lump of clay becomes reality
Winnipeg Free Press
While fundraisers and politicians got the applause for opening the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the 8,200 workers who built it have their names written on plaques inside and the memory of their creation etched in their minds forever. "It was definitely one of those projects where we needed to live it to get it done," said construction manager Rob Duerksen. Architect Antoine Predock said he originally made a clay sculpture — instead of computer drawings or models — of his design, and the museum today looks exactly as he imagined.

Think big, urges architect
Northern Life
Toronto-based architect Bruce Kuwabara kicked off the Laurentian University School of Architecture's yearly lecture series with a call to action to the many students in the audience. "You can create the world you want," said Kuwabara, a founding partner of KPMB Architects and recipient of the Order of Canada in 2012. The world Kuwabara wants is one with landscapes that are accessible and draw people together. "The way you want to make a city today is one that creates convergence," he said. "It's probably the most important thing architecture can do."

PATH blazes new trail to RBC WaterPark Place
The Globe and Mail
To the casual eye, it's another glass tower lining Lake Ontario. But the RBC WaterPark Place III building marks a series of victories, big and small, for the City of Toronto, its waterfront dwellers and landlord Oxford Properties Group Inc. The 30-storey complex, on Queens Quay across the street from the lake, will officially open in December. But it's already slowly filling with workers who'll take advantage of a Toronto first: a waterfront connection to the city's PATH pedestrian network, providing shelter from the Canadian elements northward to Union Station.
