Toronto Society of Architects Forum: The Saga of the Canadian Embassies

Marie Josée Therrien, author of the recently published book on Canadian embassies, will discuss how these official architectural symbols of Canada abroad have been the subject of meticulous planning. Her talk, introduced by Sara Diamond, President of OCAD, will focus on the Department of Foreign Affairs' successes, contradictions and missed opportunities.

The TSA Forum will be held at the Gladstone Hotel (Queen and Dufferin), on Tuesday, April 4th. The evening starts at 6:00 p.m., "The Saga of the Canadian Embassies" presentation is at 7:00 p.m., with discussion following - is the iconography of Canada being successfully expressed around the world? What about Canada' log cabin in Turin? What should be proposed for Toronto's World Expo 2015 bid? Come out and steer the discussion where it needs to be taken.

Upcoming forums in May and June will focus on Urban Activism in the City. The TSA forum, a regular gathering of architects, and friends of architecture and the city for drinks and discussion at the Gladstone Hotel , is co-sponsored by the TSA with UrbanSpace.
