As an architect, educator, planner, preservation advocate, and trailblazing visionary working in a field largely dominated by men, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel has been, and continues to be, an inspiration to generations of architects worldwide. She was recently awarded the 2020 Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s Gold Medal, its highest honour. To acknowledge and celebrate her distinguished legacy, the University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design together with McGill University’s Peter Guo-hua Fu School of Architecture and Building Equality in Architecture Canada will hold a public, on-line event and exhibition screening on November 12, 2020: For Her Record: Notes on the Work of Blanche Lemco van Ginkel. A conversation moderated by Brigitte Shim (architect and educator, Daniels Faculty) will feature Phyllis Lambert, Founding Director of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and architect and activist; Mary McLeod, architectural historian and educator, Columbia University; and Ipek Mehmetoglu, doctoral student, McGill University.
