The Bank of Canada to Receive Controversial Renovation

Via Flickr CC User. Image © Brent Eades

In this interesting report in the Citizen, Maria Cook exposes the plan to renovate the Arthur Erickson-designed Bank of Building in Ottawa. The existing building, which features a public atrium complete with a tropical garden, is being extensively remodeled to improve security and building performance, although arguably at great cost to the design. Cook exposes how the bank turned down a prestigious design award in 2011 as it was already at that point privately considering the changes, and explains how its privileged position – related to the government but not controlled by it – effectively means that the bank has nobody it has to answer to who might stop these plans. You can read the full article here.
