DTAH is celebrating the launch of A Portrait of Canada’s Parliament by William P. McElligott, edited by Lyette Fortin. DTAH Partner Emeritus, Robert N. Allsopp co-authored Chapter 7: The People’s Park: The Landscape and Urban Plan of Parliament Hill with Linda Dicaire.
The book features architectural photographs, historical images and articles about The Centre Block, the iconic building of Canada’s federal parliament. The building, which is currently planned to be closed for over ten years to undergo a complete renovation, and its context, landscape, structure and heritage has been captured in A Portrait of Canada’s Parliament/Un Portrait du Parlement du Canada.
The virtual launch will take place on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. EDT, hosted by the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism. Learn more about the book and register to attend the virtual launch on Zoom here
