The West Block is showcased on several major media outlets

June 18, 2018

After nearly a quarter of a century, the West Block of the Canadian Parliament is finally nearing completion. Designed by EVOQ in joint venture with Architecture49, the West Block will be the interim seat of the House Commons as of January 2019. From the meticulous restoration of the original building’s characteristic elements to the spectacular glass roof installed over the courtyard, the West Block is a crossroads of past, present and future that all Canadians can be proud of.
