Forward 50 Join us in OctoberDear Alumni and Friends,

Registration is now open for our FORWARD►50 anniversary event in October!

Marking the 50th anniversary of architectural education at Carleton University, we invite you to celebrate this special occasion with us. Alumni, faculty and current students will join in conversations about the fields of architecture and urbanism, engaging not only the spirit of things past, but also the shape of things to come.

A two day event, FORWARD►50 will include stories and interviews, an auction and time in the design studios, receptions and Dinner in the Street, as well as free time for getting together with old friends.

Please consider joining us on the eve of October 3rd, for the first Forum lecture of the season featuring alumnus Gary Hasell, and for the many programs we have planned for the 4th and 5th.

Warm regards,
Jill Stoner, Director

Program and Registration

Coming from out of town and looking for accommodation? We have booked a block of rooms at the Alt Hotel Ottawa under the name “School of Architecture, Carleton University”. The reservation will be held until September 17th.


Please note that at the present time, there is a significant impact of construction in and around the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, which is also affecting the availability of nearby parking.

It is recommended that guests either use public transportation – local bus or O-train service (for scheduling visit or taxi/uber/lyft service for a drop off at the door.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to seeing everyone at Forward 50!

Thank you to our sponsors!
