James Frazer Stirling: Notes from the Archive exhibition
A vast collection of material produced by the studio of one of the best-known twentieth century architects: sketches, plans, models, photographs and articles cut out of newspapers, photographs and documents kept by Stirling and his team members are organised and presented in the exhibition underway at CCA in Montreal.

The exhibition offers a key to interpretation of Stirling?s work which goes beyond the diverse influences that have been identified in his architectural projects, which have been called modernist, avant-garde, neoclassical, rationalist, brutalist and post-modern, to grasp the continuity of the architect?s thought.

The material on exhibit, from the James Stirling/Michael Wilford fund kept at CCA, tells the story of the architect?s career from his education at the Liverpool School of Architecture to the projects that made him popular, such as his plan for the faculty of engineering at Leicester University.
