Extraordinary new condo towers aim to give Vancouver the 'wow!' factor
CBC News
A slew of innovative new condo towers are being proposed for Vancouver, as the city aims to take its arguably boring architecture to the next level. Architect James Cheng is among those working on a signature building for 1445-1455 West Georgia St. — a 50-storey tower with an 80-foot glass jewel at the base, and walls that resemble the Seattle Library.

Unique laboratory opens at Queen's University
Canadian Architect
The Reactor Materials Testing Laboratory has opened at Queen's University in Kingston, ON. Designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects, the specialized lab is able to simulate conditions that materials experience inside a nuclear reactor and will advance research into next generation power plants. The central feature of the off-campus, one-storey structure is a large accelerator that generates a beam of high-energy protons. Encased in a reinforced concrete chamber, it can test the stresses, temperature and other conditions found in metallic components of an operational reactor core.

As is made evident by the recent large-scale 3-D printing exhibition, 3DXL, held in Toronto, this distinction is becoming increasingly blurred by modern technological advancements. One of the main attractions at the exhibition was a project titled "Arabesque Wall." The wall was designed and created by architects Benjamin Dillenburger — who is also currently an assistant professor of Architecture at the University of Toronto — and Michael Hansmeyer, in collaboration with Design Exchange, Toronto.

Before Calgary diners take their first bites, RAD Architecture has already dished up a feast for the eyes
Calgary Herald
Although RAD Architecture's name originated as an acronym formed from the two founding partners' maiden names (Ryan Andersen Design), "rad" has become a pretty fair description of the success the firm's current three owners — Kristen Lien, Kate Allen and Kelly Morrison — have found in the six years since they graduated from the master's of architecture program at the University of Calgary.
