Scope and Content

This project series documents a site study for the new National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario in 1978. The office identified the project number as 7809.

In 1977, Parkin Architects Planners won a limited architectural competition for their design of the new National Gallery of Canada. The selected site for the competition, next to the Ottawa River, was controversial due to its uneven ground and lack of access to main streets in Ottawa. This project consisted of an extended site study for the construction of that building following the announcement of the competition winner if the original site was to be used. This was a brief urban design study to consider appropriate massing, exterior spaces, access, and vistas to and from the proposed building. It also included studying the best use of land next to the new gallery.

The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1976-1978. The textual records include the predesign programme and schemes, correspondence, notes, meeting reports and research.
