The design by Diamond Schmitt Architects / KWC Architects was revealed today and it's simply stunning. The OPL and Library and Archives Canada are partnering to build the 216,000-square-foot facility at 555 Albert St., just west of Bronson Avenue. “The location at a cultural crossroads of a route that traces the three founding peoples – French, English and Indigenous – underscores the spirit of confluence in the building’s design and the possibilities for these memory institutions in a modern facility to advance the Canadian story,” said Donald Schmitt, Principal, Diamond Schmitt Architects.
Public consultation was a key component of the design process. It is targeting LEED Gold at minimum.
CFMS couldn't be more pleased to be part of the team, providing the commissioning for such a prestigious project.
