The Bow, Calgary’s tallest tower – EnCana and Cenovus Headquarters, Alberta
Design: Foster + Partners with Zeidler Partnership

The Bow Calgary
This headquarters tower is the tallest building in Canada outside of Toronto. The architecture is like an inverted Swiss Re tower, the logic to the form is robust: the building faces south, curving towards the sun to take advantage of daylight and heat, maximising views o the Rocky Mountains. By turning the convex facade into the prevailing wind, the structural loading is minimised, reducing the amount of steel needed. Clever building.

Théâtre de Quat’sous Montréal Building
Theater is about fugacity, a succession of unique moments that barely survive in the memories of those who were there. Theaters are ghostly figures that have witnessed what we are about to forget.

Théâtre la Licorne, Montréal

Canadian Theatre Building
The new building of Théâtre la Licorne like the theater company that runs it, La Manufacture, has a strong bond with its surrounding area. It tends to communicate with the city and reflects the type of theater that it produces: straightforward and urban.
