The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) is an international research institution located in Montreal, Canada. It was founded in 1979 by Canadian architect Phyllis Lambert, who wanted to create a space that would promote public understanding and appreciation of architecture as a cultural practice. The CCA is housed in a modernist building designed by architect Peter Rose, located in the heart of the city’s historic Shaughnessy Village neighbourhood.

The CCA is dedicated to the study of architecture, urbanism, and landscape design. Its collection includes over 150,000 drawings, prints, photographs, and other materials related to the built environment, dating from the Renaissance to the present day. The collection is available for research and study purposes, and the CCA also hosts exhibitions, lectures, and events that explore various aspects of architectural history and practice.

One of the unique features of the CCA is its emphasis on interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The institution brings together architects, historians, scholars, curators, and other experts from a range of disciplines to explore the social, cultural, and political dimensions of architecture and the built environment. In addition to its research programs, the CCA also offers an international fellowship program for scholars and practitioners in the fields of architecture, urbanism, and landscape design.

Free admission for all on Thursdays after 5 pm and on the first Sunday of every month
