Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada (SSAC)

The Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada (SSAC) is a registered charitable organization founded in 1974 by a broadly-based group of people interested in encouraging a greater understanding and development of the study of Canadian architecture. Included in this study is an examination of both historical and cultural issues relating to buildings, streetscapes, cities, and the countryside. Giaimo’s Creative Director Stephanie Mah will be chairing the session Changing Contexts and Reintegrating Spaces at the upcoming SSAC Conference, which will take place virtually May 27-31, 2021. The session will take place Sunday, May 30, at 3PM EDIT and includes the following presentations: From icon to experience, rethinking architecture to recast heritage buildings by Nicolas Demers-Stoddart of Provencher Roy, The Oculus Revitalization: transforming a derelict space-age pavilion by Stephanie Mah of Giaimo and ACO Toronto, Urban palimpsest: graffiti in Canada by Bianca Weeko Martin of University of Waterloo, and A landscape in three acts: Montreal’s Notman Garden by Cynthia Hammond of Concordia University.
