Professor Mariana Esponda with her team of students in the 3rd year conservation and sustainability class partnered with the Strutt Foundation on a project on Canadian Modern House. Thirteen distinctly modern houses designed between the 1950s to 1980s were chosen to represent several diverse regions of Canada. The project explored how each house reflects the intersection of culture, politics, economics, and aesthetics as these forces are played out in distinct social settings and distinct times. As well, each student has proposed an appropriate intervention/conservation/adaptive reuse for each modern house incorporating XX1st-century requirements on sustainability, enhancing heritage values and accessibility. The work is being exhibited at the Modern Architecture Pavilion, Strutt House and at the Visitor Center of Chelsea, Gatineau since April until November 2017 and will be part of the tours for the National Heritage Trust/ Association of Preservation and Technology (APT) conference in Ottawa in October 2017.
