Biography

Phyllis Lambert, architect, author, scholar, curator, conservationist, activist and critic of architecture and urbanism, is Founding Director Emeritus of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), which she created in 1979 as an international research centre and museum premised on the belief that architecture is a public concern. Through research programs, public events, exhibitions, publications and continuously building its exceptional collection of drawings, books, photographs, and architectural archives, the CCA seeks to create a new discourse for the architecture of the twenty-first century.

Lambert first made architectural history in bringing Mies van der Rohe to NY to design the Seagram Building for which she was Director of Planning from 1954-1958. After earning a Master of Architecture in1963 from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Lambert has worked consistently to advance democratic practices in advancing contemporary architecture and the social issues of urban conservation. In honor of her life’s work Lambert was awarded the Golden Lion of the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.
