Zeidler and DCA scheme selected for Canadian Parliamentary redevelopmentMay 16, 2022
Following an international design competition, the Canadian Ministry of Public Services and Procurement today announced the selection of Zeidler Architecture Inc. in association with David Chipperfield Architects as the competition Laureate for Block 2 of Canada’s Parliamentary Precinct.
The urban block – which encompasses eleven buildings – will be redeveloped to provide office space for the Senate and the House of Commons and allow for the future consolidation of parliamentary accommodations, including space for the Library of Parliament. As a site of national importance, the project carries a responsibility to represent the values of a nation and a vision for its future.
The proposal embraces complex issues of sustainability, heritage, indigeneity and diversity. It retains most of the existing structures and combines them with new low-carbon, efficient buildings to create a diverse, characterful, yet coherent whole.
