Architecture aficionados should visit the Canadian Centre for Architecture, a rare nineteenth-century structural treasure. The entire building is 130,000 square feet of exhibition space, a library with sketches and books covering everything from the Renaissance to Frank Lloyd Wright, and a theater. Take a tour on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m., or hear a lecture on Thursday at 6 p.m., both free. Through April, the main exhibit explores environmentally sound design practices. Outside, the garden is a narrative told via landscape architecture.
