10 NEWS BOOK


Anthology provides a comprehensive review of the past five decades of Canadian architecture


Co-published by Canadian Architect magazine and Princeton Architectural Press, ‘Canadian Modern Architecture, 1967 to the present’ was recently published in Toronto. Co-edited by Elsa Lam, editor of Canadian Architect, and Graham Livesey, professor at the University of Calgary, it is the first comprehensive review of Canadian architecture to appear in many years. The 15 chapters were written by a


variety of “top architectural scholars and critics” in the country, including George Baird, Brian Carter, Ian Chodikoff, Odile Hénault, George Kapelos, Lisa Landrum, Steven Mannell and many more.

Architecture firms pledge net zero strategies for future projects


Architects Perkins and Will, in partnership with Penoyre & Prasad, have pledged to offer “net zero-carbon operational design strategies” for new and retrofit buildings from this month, to help address real estate’s impact on the climate. The built environment contributes 40


per cent of the UK’s total carbon footprint, according to the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC). “Designing in a net-zero carbon target for a building’s operations has a crucial role to play in cutting this figure across the property industry,” said the architects, by “slashing energy usage while helping future-proof assets against a backdrop of increasing regulation. The two recently merged practices will


produce a Zero Operational Carbon Strategies Report for each new build or retrofit project at RIBA Stage 2 (at the end of the concept design) “at no additional cost to the client.” The aim is to “encourage more sustainable buildings to be developed by making the process easier for investors and developers. The report will “make clear to clients what the operational emissions gap of their buildings will be, and how best to close it in line with the UKGBC’s 2019 definition of net-zero operation, helping to “better inform clients’ decisions in line with the UK’s 2050 net-zero target.”


Reaching net-zero operational carbon for buildings begins with minimising


The 50-year retrospective begins with


the nation’s centennial projects, including Expo 67, and proceeds to explore national institutions and movements, regional and indigenous architectural tendencies, and how Canadian architects interpreted major international trends. The book also examines the influence of architects in Canada’s three largest metropolitan areas – Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. The book is divided into four themed


sections: National Movements, International Influences, Regional Responses and Centers of Influence. Topics covered include the ‘megastructure’ projects of the 1970s, the influence of

postmodernism in the 1980s, and the “distinct architectural legacy of Canada’s diverse regions,” commented the publishers.


energy demand for heating and cooling directly through considerations such as building orientation, insulation, controlled ventilation and heat pumps. From there, design strategies that maximise natural light are proven to save significant energy from reducing the reliance on artificial lighting, while also boosting human wellbeing. As much of the energy demand as possible for buildings must be met through on-site renewable energy and, taking plug loads into account, the remaining residual energy demand must be offset through direct investment in offsite renewable sources or through a credible and validated offset mechanism. Grimshaw has also recently announced its net zero strategy, in which the practice has set a target for all of its design work to be “net zero carbon ready” during the new decade. In addition, all of its studios are to operate “on a net zero basis,” and Grimshaw has designed the Dubai Expo 2020 Sustainability Pavilion.
