Great chance to catch up and brainstorm some summer projects.

We aim to try a different venue each meeting, generally somewhere central. This month we’ll be at the Clocktower Brew Pub in the Glebe (575 Bank St).

We also feature Canadian architecture projects in our event banners. This month, we have a call for submission for the 13th annual Come Up To My Room at the Gladstone Hotel.
