The research cluster of Carleton University welcomed three new research assistants, all Masters students from the Architecture and Engineering programs in the fall, building on the work established by former researchers.
Lia Di Giulio received her Bachelor’s degree in Architecture at McGill University and will begin a Master's degree at Carleton University this fall. Her research surrounding the SSHRC Grant focuses on discussing with leaders of adaptive reuse projects in Ottawa to understand the challenges and barriers they face. She has prior experience in project management at Concordia University where she assisted in the management of renovation projects throughout the campus. She also has experience in the field of heritage architecture having worked as a docent and researcher at the Hurtubise House, the oldest farmhouse in Westmount.
Alex Larose is currently in her final year of the three-year M.Arch program at Carleton. She received her BA. in History and Theory of Architecture at Carleton University. Her research surrounding the SSHRC Grant focuses on Canadian Policy relating to adaptive reuse and the development of a Map of Potential Buildings for Adaptive Reuse in Ottawa. Alex is currently writing her M.Arch thesis on adaptive reuse looking specifically at the preservation of memory and how memory can be layered to represent the histories of many peoples. She is passionate about food, travel and spending time with her dog.
Andrée-Ann Langevin is an M. Arch student (1st year) at Carleton University. She is presently assisting with the research Adaptive Reuse for Sustainable Future. She had previously started her career in the heritage field, being part of the heritage team at EVOQ Architecture as a junior project manager. She has completed a technical architectural degree, followed by a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Design. She was selected to participate in APT’s 2022 Grand Tour in Italy as an emerging professional. Her values push her to contribute to the development of sustainable architectural practice sensitive to its history and users.
