Join urban historian and educator Max Foran for a lively talk based on his new book Development Derailed: Calgary and the CPR 1962-64. The story began with a proposed multimillion dollar development project on a piece of CPR reserve land in the heart of downtown Calgary. The plan was met with rapture by the political and business leaders of the day. The scope of the plan grew to include a proposal of rerouting or removing the railway tracks from the downtown area and reshaping much of Calgary's urban core. What could have derailed such a grand scheme? Presented by the Chinook Country Historical Society. Monthly events listed at http://www.chinookcountry.org

February 2: Old Buildings, New Designs: Architectural Transformations by Charles Bloszies Saturday February 2, 10am–12pm, Shelf Life Books, 4th Street and 13th Avenue SW
Join us for a discussion of Princeton Architectural Press’ Architecture Briefs series, as led by Bill Johnston. Increasingly, architects are hired to design new work for existing structures. Whether for reasons of preservation, sustainability, or cost-effectiveness, the movement to reuse buildings presents a variety of design challenges and opportunities. Old Buildings, New Designs is an Architecture Brief devoted to working within a given architectural fabric—from the technical issues that arise from aging construction to the controversy generated by the various project stakeholders to the unique aesthetic possibilities created through the juxtaposition of old and new. Charles F. Bloszies is an architect and structural engineer who has been actively engaged in work that merges both disciplines since opening his office in San Francisco in 1985. http://www.shelflifebooks.ca/events.php
