School of Architecture celebrates launch of Chéverie pavilion
The Dalhousie University Faculty of Architecture will mark the official launch of a new pavilion in Chéverie, N.S., built by students from the Dalhousie University School of Architecture, Friday, June 8, World Oceans Day.
The new pavilion is a giant, nineteenth-century style, camera obscura, set on the salt marsh in Chéverie. It pays tribute to both history and fine art as it overlooks the tidal flats of the Bay of Fundy and a marsh restored to its previous condition by the hard work of many local volunteers
This project is the culmination of years of research funding through Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, (SSHRC) and an excellent example of how students and the community benefit from the research of Dalhousie professors.
The opening will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a ribbon cutting and photo opportunities with the Rt. Hon. Dave Wilson, Minister, Government of Nova Scotia, Hon. / L'hon. Kelvin K. Ogilvie C.M., Ph.D., D.Sc., F.C.I.C., H.col., Senator, Government of Canada, Christine Macy, Dean, Faculty of Architecture and Planning and Reed W. Allen, Council, Municipality of West Hants in attendance. The ceremony will be preceded with a morning of events for local school children beginning at 9:30 a.m. and will be followed by a high tea, celebrating high tide at the Avon Emporium at 2:00 p.m.
