Citizen Lambert: Joan of Architecture screens in Toronto

As part of the Reel Artists Film Festival in Toronto, this screening takes place at 3:30pm on Sunday, February 24 in the Al Green Theatre at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, located at 750 Spadina Avenue.

Teri Wehn-Damisch’s film provides a unique glimpse into the world of Phyllis Lambert, renowned Canadian architect, urban activist and founder of the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal. The figure that emerges from Wehn-Damisch’s composite portrait is a visionary thinker with boundless energy, a feisty woman driven by joyful ambition, a free spirit.

The film begins with an introduction by Marianne McKenna, partner in Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects. There will be a special post-screening conversation with Phyllis Lambert and The Globe and Mail architecture critic Lisa Rochon.
