Tim and Pat Murray of Murray and Murray Architects will deliver a lecture at 6:00pm on Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at the National Gallery of Ottawa, located at 380 Sussex Drive. The lecture will highlight their body of work and the experience of establishing and maintaining one of Ottawa’s largest architectural practices. The brothers are well known in Ottawa, both as architects and active members of the community. They established the Murray and Murray practice in 1961 a few years after emigrating from Ireland.
Notable accomplishments for the firm include Scotia Bank Place, Dunton Tower and Robertson Hall at Carleton University, the original Algonquin College campus, master planning and various buildings at the University of Ottawa and Minto Place. In addition to architectural work, Pat led a parallel career in politics as mayor of Rockcliffe and councillor for the former regional government.
Former professional partners and staff include George Bemi, Idwal Richards, Alex Rankin, Tony Griffiths, John Cook, Doug Clancey, Bob Webster, Richard Limmert and Diane Phillips.
