Heritage Ottawa, in collaboration with the Friends of the Château Laurier and Carleton University, invites you to a special Special Forum Event on September 5, 2019:

Can Compatible Modern Architecture be Added to Heritage Buildings?

The event includes an overview of the Château Laurier's history and heritage values, the owner's proposals for the addition, and why these do not respect the building nor its nationally prominent setting. Compelling examples of compatible modern additions to historic places, both in Canada and abroad, will be presented.

Expert speakers include:

Mark Thompson Brandt, Conservation Architect and Urbanist, MTBA Associates Inc.
Peter Coffman, Associate Professor, History and Therory of Architecture
Mariana Esponda, Associate Professor, Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism
Lyette Fortin, Adjunct Professor, Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism
Phyllis Lambert CC, COQ, Founding Director, Canadian Centre for Architecture (by video)
Barry Padolsky, Architect and Urban Planner, Barry Padolsky Associates Inc. Architects
and Students from the Conservation in Practice Studio Teagan Hyndman & Lauren Liebe, Ksenia Beliaeva & Danica Mitric, Luis Panchi Galvan

An Exhibit of student projects considering approaches to a Château Laurier addition will be on display from last year's design studio.

WHEN: Thursday, September 5, 2019 | 6:00pm to 8:00pm
