Nature of the Project Reach
The Strutt House (by appointment) and the Exhibits at the Gatineau Park Visitors Centre, will be open to the public In the National Capital area. On-line virtual exhibits will be available later in the year.
To inform the public about some of the amazing modernist homes built between the 1930s and 1970s and to reveal how these gems of architecture represent the excitement of the era when Canada was really defining its identity as a progressive and exemplary country. As one of the official NCC Confederation Pavilions, visitors can see the other 10 pavilions, and experience an architectural journey through time—from the settlement era in the 1820s to the contemporary capital.
