  • Ottawa Graffiti: A Photo Exposé - Spacing Ottawa
    and color to dull gray surfaces they can also make a street corner into a darker less humane space The difference may lie in the intentions of the creator When graffiti is an act spontaneous self expression or communication their effect is to transform a generic structures into unique and meaningful landmarks When graffiti is intended to deface they signal the degradation of the surrounding community However it is likely that the real significance of these words and images do not lie in the hand that holds the spray can but rather in the eye of the beholder Today Apartment613 is featuring a Photo Essay by Sarah Mercer To my eye the graffiti in Sarah s essay falls firmly into the category of spontaneous expression These photographs of the images plastered to Ottawa s walls and other surfaces shows a form of informal public art as essential to the fabric of the city as the more permanent and celebrated landmarks Whether or not you feel that graffiti is an art form or a crime it is hard to deny that Ottawa wouldn t seem quite like the same place without them photo courtesy of Sarah Mercer Subscribe to Mag Share

  • Designs to take pride in: The architecture of Douglas Cardinal - Spacing Ottawa
    feet under Cardinal made it clear throughout the lecture that organic forms that were in harmony with the environment and captured the passion of the client were in his opinion the most important factors in great design Throughout the lecture Cardinal told an array of stories on the trials and tribulations of working with various clients in his over 50 years of practice However it was his story of the design of the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau Quebec formerly the Museum of Civilization that really captured the evening Cardinal sent bouts of laughter throughout the auditorium with his vivid tales describing the work on the museum alongside Prime Minister Trudeau and brought to life the urgency of Trudeau s vision for a Capital project It was the first museum Cardinal had ever designed and he openly admitted that he had no idea what the collection even held at the time of the competition However he was inspired by the belief and power of Trudeau in the vision for the project and what it would mean to the Nation s Capital Cardinal then noted that he tried to reason with the Prime Minister and bring the reality of the project into focus but Trudeau was insistent that construction for the museum start immediately despite not even owning the land at the time Such was the urgency of Trudeau s plan and this was then justly met by Cardinal who in describing the project stated when you make a commitment you make it happen Cardinal s lecture focused on positive statements and the importance of power in your own beliefs He discussed his founding principle that architecture should be a respect for people and the environment a statement that he hopes comes across in all of his work and his final advice to other architects was to remember that architecture should be delightful In describing his multitude of other projects such as the Grand Prairie Regional College in Alberta the Cardinal Residence in Stony Plain Alberta and the new Aboriginal Student Centre at Carleton University he strongly reminded us that all architecture should be art and that architecture should be somewhere we want to be and want to look at it should be good for the soul Concluding the night Cardinal discussed his design for a new museum and cultural centre on Victoria Island in Ottawa In his opinion it is essential that this site stay a public space and be given back to the First Nations so that they may feel properly represented in the Capital Cardinal s comments referenced the current project being proposed by developers on Chaudiere Island were they are planning to construct a new mixed use community in the heart of the Capital Region Cardinal stated that a design such as his would respect the sacredness of the Victoria Island site while giving all communities involved a place to convene and publically enjoy the island and Ottawa River The final section of the night was
