The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) has announced the winners of the 2004-2005 Power Corporation of Canada Award. Ms. Stephanie Davidson of Dalhousie University, and Ms. Lian Chang of McGill University are this year’s winners. This award program is dedicated to students enrolled in Masters’ of Architecture programs across Canada. Winners are given the opportunity to undertake project and benefit from a 4-month research residency at the CCA. The award carries a $10,000 stipend for each recipient.

This year’s jury comprised Phyllis Lambert, Founding Director and Chair of the Board of Trustees of CCA; Annie Lebel, architect; Dirk De Meyer, CCA Chief Curator; Gilles Saucier, architect; and Mirko Zardini, Senior Consulting Curator at CCA.

From Dalhousie, Stephanie Davidson will undertake a research project entitled Scrapbook City: Representing Contemporary Montreal. McGill student Lian Chang will carry out a research project entitled Festival and Fortification: The Ritual Transformations of Henry II’s Royal Entries, 1548-50.

The Power Corporation of Canada Prize has been established in 2003, through the generous sponsorship of Power Corporation of Canada, to heighten the experience of graduate students currently enrolled in M.Arch in one of the ten schools of architecture in Canada. Its goal is also to foster their relations with the CCA and the architectural community in Montreal and across Canada. A total of 12 students over a six-year period will participate in the research activities. Students benefit from the resources of the CCA Library and its unique collection of prints and drawings, photographs, and architectural archives to provide for original research in architectural theory and practice.
