Why Ottawa Past & Present?

A few decades ago, Ottawa was drastically different: Sparks Street was thriving, people were actually living downtown and at LeBreton Flats and a train could bring you to the heart of the city. The narrow and institutionalized vision of bureaucrats, the rapid expansion of car use, and a generalized neglect of architectural heritage changed the urban fabric of the Capital.

The Gréber Plan and the NCC transformed Ottawa for the worse.
One building at a time.

We promote intensification and discourage sprawl. We are not against tall buildings, but we have a lot to say about bad design.
