Katz unveils new details of Edmonton Arena District mega-project
Edmonton Journal
While Rogers Place arena has been scrutinized from the start, information about the area surrounding the new home of the Edmonton Oilers has been murky. Recently, Daryl Katz, team owner and co-developer of the Edmonton Arena District (EAD) made a rare appearance before journalists to reveal new details about a $2.5 billion mega-development that will transform four million square feet (including the arena) of downtown parking lots and one-storey building sites into what he calls the largest mixed-use sports and entertainment project in Canada.

Vancouver Urban Design Awards showcase visionary buildings
Huffington Post
Vancouver isn't all about high housing prices and soulless monster houses. It's home to some mind-blowing architecture and visionary urban design too. The City of Vancouver handed out its first-ever Urban Design Awards this week, honouring the best projects that "enrich the overall experience of the city by carefully considering the design of public spaces, as well as the buildings that interact with these spaces."

How architecture shaped Winnipeg's DNA
Winnipeg Free Press
On one day alone in the summer of 1912, 3,500 people stepped off trains in Winnipeg. One. Single. Day. Like most structures of the early 1900s, the CPR Station, built in 1904-05, was designed by Montreal architects Edward and W.S. Maxwell with the expressed intent — "dramatic portico, richly ornamented facades, grand rotundo" — of impressing new arrivals of the wealth and grandeur of what just two decades before was little more than a prairie outpost described by one modern-day historian as a "mighty dung heap."

An alliance to build with a light touch
Toronto Star
Imagine a house that makes you feel good. A house filled with fresh air, natural light and big, open spaces. Now zoom in on skylights that close themselves when it rains; temperature, ventilation and humidity levels that change with the touch of a finger; and a light, airy basement where children can play in comfort on the warm floor. Factor in planet-friendly, energy-efficient features and you've got an "active house." Canada's first such home — part of an architectural movement that began in Europe — was built in Thorold, ON, last year by home builder Great Gulf.

When star architects team up with upstart designers, these beautiful objects happen
The Globe and Mail
"Collaboration" is the sort of utopian word you don't often hear from architects. Like an auteur, storyteller or artist, an architect is the creative driver of a project — keen to be seen as a lone wolf or creative genius. There is no "architect" in team. Teamwork, of course, is a buzzword these days in the creative world, with open-plan office spaces, Ikea hacks and musical sister acts at the peak of their popularity.
