Via Zoom

The town of Carleton Place, about 50 kilometres from Ottawa, has a colourful history that includes royal visits, intrepid industry, and sordid squalor. These stories are told by the town’s heritage architecture. That architecture has been researched and interpreted by undergraduate students in Carleton University’s History & Theory of Architecture program and pulled together online in a Virtual Museum of Architecture.

Our Emerging Scholars Present event will be the public launch of the first iteration of that student project. It will include several short presentations by Carleton students, highlighting some of the most lively stories that the architecture of Carleton Place has to tell. Supervising faculty from Carleton will introduce the project, and we’ll also hear from the project’s community partner, the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.

The fascinating and storied historic architecture of Carleton Place is a well-kept secret, but this evening we will pull back the curtain.

SPEAKERS: Peter Coffman, Tyler Hodgkinson, Jennifer Irwin, Kyle Kreutner, Lauren Maloney, Ashley Mowry, Sharon Trac and Michael Windover.
