The reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has tested our resilience as individuals, as professionals, as families, and as community members. The OAA invites its membership community to harness its architectural-thinking powers and respond creatively to this critical concept—resiliency.

The OAA and MPPs Celebrate Ontario Architecture with Queen's Park Picks Online
The OAA is celebrating World Architecture Day a bit differently this year. Traditionally, the OAA marks the occasion with a reception at Queen’s Park for Members of Provincial Parliament to reveal the year’s Queen’s Park Picks. However, in light of COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety, we've brought the 2020 Queen's Park Picks online for a fully virtual experience.
