The Forum Lecture Series was established in 1968 to bring local, national and international architects to Ottawa to educate students, faculty and the general public about the profession and the impact that architecture has on design. Unique in Ottawa, the annual lectures take place in the auditorium at the National Gallery and in the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.
