National Monument to Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan

The public survey for the National Monument to Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan closes June 9th.

We’re honoured to be a part of this project with Adrian Stimson and the MBTW Group.

Team Stimson’s collective goal has been to imagine an enduring tribute to honour the commitment and sacrifice of Canadian Armed Forces, public servants and civilians in helping to rebuild Afghanistan.

This goal includes recognizing the support offered by families, friends, and communities in Canada and the people of Afghanistan.

Our hope through our design for ‘Home Base’ is that we have honoured Canada’s gratitude for the sacrifices made by Canadians who lost their lives or were injured. To examine and understand the mission, to create a place where all people can gather to learn, reflect, remember and heal.

Allied Arts Medal 2017

We’re happy to announce that Christine Leu, on behalf of LeuWebb Projects, has been awarded the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s (RAIC) Allied Arts Medal for 2017.

The RAIC bestows the Allied Arts Medal every two years. The award honours a Canadian artist or designer for outstanding achievement in artwork created to be integrated with architecture. Any medium allied to architecture is eligible including murals, sculpture, glass, fabric, lighting, furniture, water, sound, site-specific installation, video, digital and industrial and landscape design.

“Each one of Christine Leu’s permanent works and temporary installations manifests a thoughtful and thought-provoking approach to its architectural or environmental context,” said the three-member jury.

“This is an extraordinary body of work that bridges art and architecture,” said the jury. “It demonstrates skill in response to site interpretation. There is a high-quality craft element.”

The medal will be formally presented in May at the RAIC’s Festival of Architecture in Ottawa.
