P3A is pleased to announce that we have been chosen along with Urban Strategies Inc. of Toronto and Urbanics Consultants Ltd. of Vancouver to provide urban planning and design services for the Railyard Renewal Project - the second phase of the Regina Revitalization Initiative. Other phases include the Stadium Project which is currently underway, and the Taylor Field Neighbourhood Redevelopment which will take place following the completion of the new stadium.
We are excited about this remarkable opportunity to engage with the site directly across from our offices on Dewdney Avenue. Located on 17.5 acres of land formerly used as a railyard in the heart of Regina, this project has the opportunity to connect the Warehouse District and Regina’s Downtown.
P3A's Brad Pickard joined Halifax Architect Devin McCarthy of DSRA Architects to co-lead a course in collaboration with Dalhousie University and OPEN design collaborative. The course brought together students from Dalhousie University's School of Architecture for the second iteration of HFX Tactical Architecture on Halifax's waterfront.
Building on last year's success at the Halifax Citadel, this year's installation was cited on the Halifax Waterfront. More information can be found on the OPEN projects page.
P3A, in association with heritage expert Donald Luxton and Associates, has been selected by the University of Regina to lead the College Avenue Campus Renewal Project.
The design will respect the heritage value of the buildings while adapting them to today’s needs. Vibrant spaces for teaching and learning will be developed within the historical context of the site. The restoration of Darke Hall will also play a key role and reinvigorate a rich performance venue.
We are excited to be involved in this community landmark, and look forward to working with the University of Regina once again, having previously worked with them on other projects including the Research and Innovation Centre and the Gateway Project.
The Architectural Conservation Alliance, a joint venture of Jonathan Yardley Architect and P3A, was honoured with the Lieutenant Governor’s Heritage Architecture Excellence Award for Conservation of the Regina Court House. The award recognized the complex technical innovation that allowed for a complete rehabilitation and restoration of the building exterior.
While P3A is proud of the award, we were saddened by the passing of Jonathan Yardley before the award could be presented. We are grateful to Jonathan for his friendship, his wisdom and for setting an example for others.
P3A is pleased to announce the 2015 recipient of the P3A Dr. Joseph Pettick Memorial Scholarship is Marika Yeo.
The act of seeking out traces of things left behind and searching for an understanding in uncertainty is fundamental to the creation of Marika’s pieces. Her work is constructed in a way that represents the precarious fragility of a pieced together whole. In seeking to understand the coming together of layers and pieces, the work emphasizes the ambiguity that is created with the spaces and cracks left in-between.
Marika’s hope is to inspire a spirit of search and an appreciation of the beauty in those elements of life that are difficult to define or go unseen.
P3A has been selected by the City of Humboldt to design a multi-use theatre and field house. The project will be an extension of the existing Uniplex and will further enhance the amenities available to the community. We are proud that the City noted our excellent record for engagement and proven ability to find creative solutions to complex planning exercises. P3A is looking forward to partnering with the City and community to enhance an already excellent venue for arts, culture and recreation.
The Saskatchewan Prairie Region Alliance, a joint venture of P3A, ONPA Architects and Aobdt Architecture, has been selected to provide functional programming services for the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region.
The team will be completing a needs assessment, functional programming, architectural concept and costing exercise. This project will set the stage for a new and much needed long term care facility in La Ronge - a facility that will respond to the unique nature and need of our northern neighbour.
