The Canada UK Architecture Group, a specialist group of the British Association for Canadian Studies held an event in autumn 2005 entitled 1:1, featuring London based Canadian architect Jamie Fobert, who is currently designing an extension to the Tate St Ives, and architect Michael Carroll from Montreal who recently won the Canada Council Prix de Rome for his gritty urban interventions.


The exhibition aimed to examine how the process of 'making' Architecture is affected by historical cultural circumstances and consequent immersion into a different context. Each exhibitor was invited to prepare material for display which was relevant to their practices at a particular moment in time. The venue was a pair of railway arches in London EC2 and the event took the form of an opening night and remained in place the following day for specific educational group viewing.
