Book launch: Canadian Modern Architecture, with Jean-Pierre Chupin, Elsa Lam, and David Theodore

Event, in English, Shaughnessy House, 15 February, 3pm

Starting from 1967, this comprehensive reference book considers how the practice of architecture in Canada has changed, and how Canadian architects interpreted international trends, regional and indigenous architectural tendencies, with a focus on Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver.

The conversation will concentrate on Canadian cultures of competitions and commissioning, in an international context.

Jean-Pierre Chupin is Professor, and Canada Research Chair in Architecture, Competitions, and Mediations of Excellence at the École d’architecture of the Université de Montréal, where he co-directs the Laboratoire d’étude de l’architecture potentielle (L.E.A.P.). Elsa Lam is co-editor, with Graham Livesey, of the book, and editor of Canadian Architect magazine. David Theodore is Associate Professor, and Canada Research Chair in Architecture, Health, and Computation, at McGill University.
