At this year’s edition of the National Trust conference taking place in Ottawa from October 26 to 28, our colleagues Mark Chambers and Christopher Zahaluk will be presenting two new ideas:

Preserving Modern Architecture of the Past for a Rich Societal Future

When: Friday, October 27th from 10:45am to 12:15pm

What: Mark Chambers will discuss the preservation of Canada’s emblematic spaces born from post-war period leading up to the 1970s.

He will discuss the challenges surrounding their sustainable preservation, and how they can be augmented to respond to present-day values and needs of inclusivity and accessibility.

Conservation in the Far North: Challenges and Solutions Surrounding Building Conservation in the Yukon

When: Friday, October 27th from 4:30pm to 5:30pm

What: Mark Chambers and Christopher Zahaluk will discuss the unique trifecta of territorial, historical, and climatological conditions of the Yukon and how its conservation has been approached.

They will talk about how Yukon’s heritage wood architecture can be conserved with in-depth techniques in particular contexts, all to retain their character and rehabilitate their deteriorated elements.


We’re looking forward to when Mark and Chris will be sharing these in-depth ideas on a national stage!
