Seminar around the launch of the book “Canadian Modern Architecture” (2020/02/15) at Canadian Centre for Architecture

On February 15, 2020, Jean-Pierre Chupin and David Theodore participated in a discussion about the book “Canadian Modern Architecture” on the occasion of its launch at the Shaughnessy House of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (at 3:00 pm). This reference book is edited by Elsa Lam and Graham Livesey, with a preface by Kenneth Frampton. It examines how the practice of architecture has changed in Canada and how Canadian architects have interpreted international, regional and Aboriginal architectural trends, with a focus on Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. The conversation focused on Canadian competition and commissioning cultures in an international context.
