Canadian Cuisine Library

Designer: Jessica Hickling
Degree: B. Architecture
School: Carleton University
Year: 2008
Location of Project: Parliament Hill, Ottawa
Project Status: Unbuilt

Similar to Canadian cuisine which borrows from existing traditions, our task was to take found objects from throughout Ottawa to inform 30% to 50% of our design. The library was located at the back of Parliament Hill, behind the West Block overlooking the water. The library houses storage for Canadian cookbooks, reading areas, an archive in the basement and a roof garden.
