“We’re not a museum that puts things out and says, ‘This is architecture.’ We try to make people think.”
The Canadian Centre for Architecture is an international research institution and museum premised on the belief that architecture is a public concern. We produce exhibitions and publications, develop and share our collection as a resource, advance research, offer public programs, and host a range of other activities driven by a curiosity about how architecture shapes—and might reshape—contemporary life. We invite collaborators and the wider public to engage with our activities, giving new relevance to architectural thinking in light of current disciplinary and cultural issues.
Physically anchored in Montréal by our building, park, and sculpture garden, we work within other contexts through our projects, programs, and collaborations that take place elsewhere. This website is also an extension of our activities, where you can encounter our thinking, work, and collection from wherever you are.
Founded as a new type of cultural institution by Phyllis Lambert in 1979, the CCA is currently directed by Giovanna Borasi and steered by the CCA Board of Trustees. To learn more about us, read about our history or explore a timeline of our past activities.
