Ten Years', a retrospective of the Lieutenant Governor's Design
Awards in Architecture, is on display at the Mary Black Gallery,
Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design.

The show, officially opened by Lieutenant Governor John James
Kinley and Mrs. Grace Kinley, features the 1997 award recipients
and highlights award winners from the past ten years. In his
opening remarks the lieutenant governor expressed his personal
interest in architecture and his delight with the work being done
on Government House. The restoration, which is currently
underway, was awarded a citation for plans designed by G. F.
Duffus and Company Ltd.

Present at the opening were representatives from many of the
architectural firms honoured: Merit Award winners - WHW
Architects Inc. for the Air Traffic Control Tower at the Halifax
International Airport and Lydon Lynch Architects for the Lynch
Residence, Halifax, and Citation winner Brian MacKay - Lyons
Architecture Urban Design for House on the Nova Scotia Coast #12.

These works, as well as those of the other award winners, show
the broad spectrum of building design, and the skilled
integration of concept, combining the unique culture of Nova
Scotia with the challenges posed by its rugged ocean landscape.
The exhibition reveals the creativity used in defining space, and
highlights the finest in Nova Scotian architecture.

The show runs until April 5, at the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft
and Design, 1683 Barrington Street, Halifax. Gallery hours are
Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Admission is free.
