Opened to bring public awareness to the crucial role architecture plays in shaping the identity of a city, and by default, improving the lives of residents, The Canadian Centre for Architecture, with it’s incredible gardens, is a calming oasis. The imposing 19th-century residence houses a significant archive, exhibit halls, and fascinating restoration labs, where you can see the painstaking steps involved in restoring portions of older buildings and their decorative effects. A must visit (especially with littles), is the sculpture garden, a totally novel space filled with architectural reproductions of sections of the Architecture Center itself, with plants and vegetation winding their way around the deconstructed fixtures.
