Architect Peter John Stokes brought heritage to life
The Globe and Mail
It was the late 1970s, and Peter John Stokes was contacted by a student of urban and regional planning at the University of Waterloo. Mr. Stokes was running a private practice as a consulting restoration architect out of his home off the main street in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON. The student, Paul Dilse, was interested in heritage buildings but finding few resources to help him learn about Ontario's historical structures. This inspiring encounter proved to Mr. Dilse that he, too, could make a living in the field.

The Guardian
Architectural Digest gives high marks to Canada's Absolute Towers. Completed in 2012, the buildings in a suburb of Toronto give a certain sexiness to urban living (indeed, they have even been dubbed the Marilyn Monroe Towers for their curves). The folks at Architectural Digest also deem the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland a "blockbuster" building. Completed in 2011, the magazine praises the building's "gemlike" appearance.
