For Phyllis Lambert’s, FAIA, 90th birthday on Jan. 24, the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal began to showcase both her philanthropic and built work in an exhibition called “Phyllis Lambert: 75 Years At Work.” Curated by Lambert herself, the native-born Canadian’s exhibition will guide visitors chronologically through significant projects in her life including the Saidye Bronfman Centre (named after her mother), photography, and restoration projects, and her last exhibition as the director of CCA, “Mies in America.”
