Event Details

Is there West Coast Modern on the Prairies? Join d.talks for a discussion on the blurring of indoors and outdoors, open plans and glass as we explore the modernist style that emerged in the mid 20th century. Focused on a building known as the Lacey Court, we’ll hear about the history behind J. Stevenson & Associates and what Calgary was like in the 1950s. We’ll also explore the possibilities for an adaptive reuse of the Lacey Court building from three perspectives, a conversation on the complex challenges to adaptive reuse while accommodating pressures to growth.
