Joan of Architecture is stepping down as chairperson of the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
Phyllis Lambert, 86, announced Wednesday she is retiring as chair of the board of trustees of the museum and research centre she founded in 1979.
Toronto architect Bruce Kuwabara, designer of Concordia University’s Quartier Concordia and the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, will step into Lambert’s shoes.
A tireless defender of Montreal’s built heritage, Lambert has taken an active role in every major urban planning debate in the city in the last four decades, from redeveloping the Old Port to protecting Mount Royal.
