Pierre Lassonde Pavilion, Quebec by OMA

 

This piece of Canadian architecture is straight from NYC. OMA’s New York office designed the Pierre Lassonde Pavilion, part of the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec. The museum’s newest section opened to the public last summer.

National Music Centre, Calgary by Allied Works Architecture

 

The music centre in downtown Calgary, a city in the western province of Alberta, is a sight to behold, spanning two city blocks. It has been called Allied Works Architecture’s “most ambitious project to date.”

Audain Art Museum, British Columbia by Patkau Architects

In the ski town of Whistler in British Columbia, the Audain Art Museum displays a private collector’s extensive art collection. The Canadian architecture firm Patkau Architects created a a work that is at once in harmony and at odds with the building’s forest setting.
