Henriquez Partners Architects revive Vancouver's historic York Theatre
Canadian Architect
The recent York Theatre renovation is the result of a decades-long struggle to save a historic community theatre from demolition. Originally built in 1913 as the Alcazar Theatre, the building changed identities numerous times over its storied 100-year history.

Metro News
Historic designation of a downtown Calgary building won't protect its once-popular ground-level theatre that has its own roots in city history. The now-abandoned Uptown Stage and Screen (formerly Uptown Theatre), located in the 11-storey Barron Building on 6 Street SW and Stephen Avenue, was exempted from the province's notice of historic designation, paving the way for its possible demolition, according to Matthew Wangler, executive director of the province's Historic Resource Management Branch.

Bibliothèque Monique-Corriveau par Dan Hanganu architectes et Côté Leahy Cardas architectes
L'intention principale de ce recyclage architectural vise au respect sensible d'une architecture religieuse moderne reconnue. Elle se fonde principalement sur ces deux grands voiles de la toiture qui s'ouvre généreusement vers la rue de l'Église et vers le parc à l'ouest. Le site s'inscrit dans la ville comme une véritable étoffe qui tisse les liens entre son axe civique, la rue de l'Église, son cadre urbain et ses espaces publics.
