small + ICOMOS Canada + ERA Architects

About small: Across Canada, many villages, towns, boroughs, hamlets and outports need creative approaches to assist their transition from resource-based settlements to diversified, place-based cultural economies. We believe that small communities that successfully navigate these transitions will play a pivotal role in redefining Canada’s national cultural identity, as well as its future economic success.

About ICOMOS Canada: ICOMOS is the only global non-governmental organization dedicated to the conservation of the world’s cultural heritage places. Through over 100 national committees and 28 international scientific committees, it brings together professionals from such disciplines as architecture, archaeology, planning, engineering, anthropology, art history, and geography to develop and discuss the theory and application of best practices to the conservation of buildings, landscapes, and sites. One of its important mandates is to advise UNESCO on cultural heritage matters especially in the context of the World Heritage Convention.

About ERA Architects: Our core interest is in connecting heritage to wider considerations of urban design and city building, and to a larger set of cultural values that provide perspective to our work at every scale. Our core values are in generating professional integrity and expertise through research, education and mentoring. To that end ERA frequently works collaboratively with other firms to engage in city building, conserving heritage architecture and improving the built environment. We also generate publications and exhibitions related to Toronto and to Canada’s built environment. The firm’s most recent book is The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto’s First Immigrant Neighbourhood, a documentation of Irish, African-American, Jewish, Chinese, and Italian immigration to the Ward, spanning from the 1870s to 1950s.
