Ottawa Curling Club
440 O’Connor Street
Ottawa, ON K2P 1W4
We will have a cash bar from 6:30-7:00 p.m.
The meeting will be followed by an illustrated lecture:
“Vision Chaudière: The Cultural Heritage of H2O”
Mark Thompson Brandt
Senior Conservation Architect & Urbanist, MTBA Associates
Mark’s recent conservation concepts applied to his original Master Plan for heritage-sensitive revitalization of the Victoria and Chaudière Islands District (the basis of the NCC’s vision plan for this area) will be illustrated as an example of a new paradigm for National Capital waterfronts, within the context of the wider cultural heritage of water.
The Ottawa Curling Club was constructed in 1916 and the club itself has a history going back to the time of Confederation. Guests will be able to wander about and admire the largely original interior, the many historic photographs on the walls and extensive trophy collection.
We hope that you will be able to join us for a memorable evening. Guests are welcome, light refreshments will be served following the lecture.
