Twelve Architects on Architecture

Taking place on Monday, May 12, 2014 at 6:00pm in the auditorium of the National Gallery of Canada, the winners of the 2014 Governor General’s Medals in Architecture will deliver a free public lecture describing their projects in lively five-minute presentations.

From a stage that evokes chainmail to a famous gas station-turned-community centre, the winning projects are sure to stimulate and provoke. The recent buildings include housing, university buildings, a city hall, a community centre, an outdoor stage, and two libraries. The lectures includes an assortment of images and a Q&A session afterward.

This first-time event is a partnership between the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), the Carleton University Forum Lecture Series, the Ottawa Regional Society of Architects, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the National Gallery of Canada.

The National Gallery of Canada is located at 380 Sussex Drive in Ottawa.
