Heritage Ottawa is pleased to co-host a two-part event at the next NCC Urbanism Lab.

Reuse and Renewal: Designing Futures for Historic Places

Thursday, February 14, 2019
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
NCC Urbanism Lab
40 Elgin Street, 2nd floor

When it comes to the reuse of historic buildings and sites, the success of a project depends on a deep understanding of its history and meaning for people.

Three speakers will each share a transformative project that honoured the stories of the past, while setting the stage for the next chapter.

Registration is now closed as the event is fully booked. Live webcasts will be available at the following links:

Ideas Forum on Adaptive Reuse

Friday, February 15, 2019
8:30 am to 12:30 pm
NCC Urbanism Lab
40 Elgin Street, 2nd floor

Following the Urbanism Lab on the next day, the Ideas Forum will be an opportunity for those working in heritage conservation in the National Capital Region to come together and continue the conversation — with each other, with our distinguished speakers and with NCC staff. In addition to Ignite sessions that will bring forth important considerations for adaptive reuse projects, our partners will showcase innovative projects relating to the following themes: values beyond traditional heritage values, adaptive reuse and sustainability, and the economics of adaptive reuse.

Registration is now closed.
