Centennial Place: WZMH’s new ideal in tower design for Calgary

The Canadian architect creates a dynamic city landmark that majors in sustainability, connectivity, and a playful informality. Centennial Place is a new landmark for the city of Calgary, Alberta. Located at the northwest of the downtown city core, the development’s two striking towers offer a new architectural – standard on multiple levels. Centennial Place represents the very best in sustainable office design. It achieves a level of connectivity with the city not previously seen in Calgary, linking to both the existing commercial infrastructure and, eventually, – to the adjacent planned residential neighbourhoods. Centennial Place’s highly articulated design creates a beacon, an architectural focal point, amidst a city noted for its tall buildings and dense urban environment.

Article source: Msdl Architectes


Since its opening in 1963, Montreal’s Place des Arts has been the centre of cultural and artistic life in the city. Its location relative to Place d’Armes in the historical district consciously established a strong axis for commercial and cultural development in the city. Including the original Wilfrid-Pelletier concert hall, Place des Arts now regroups five performing arts venues (six with the projected OSM concert hall) and a museum all linked by an interior hall and an exterior esplanade. It annually plays host to some of the city’s biggest international cultural events and constitutes the heart of the recent Quartier des Spectacles development meant to firmly establish the metropolis as an international centre for the performing arts.

Mcmaster Children’s Hospital (“MCH”) in Canada by Parkin Architects

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Parkin Architects

McMaster Children’s Hospital (“MCH”) is one of the top pediatric academic health science centres in Canada and serves the special and unique healthcare needs of children using a family-centred model of care. Each year, MCH has approximately 180,000 visits to subspecialty clinics, diagnostic areas, emergency department, inpatient units and operating rooms. McMaster Children’s Hospital recognizes that children’s health needs are unique and that the development of optimum health in childhood can prevent other conditions of poor health later in life. The existing Emergency at MCH was originally designed for both adults and children, was overcrowded (the number of patient visits has more than doubled in the past three years to 30,000 visits), and had few appropriate family facilities.
