Focus on Howard Rideout Architect

An exhibit celebrating the work of Howard Rideout Architect in Simcoe County – called Building Community/Community Building – opens this weekend at the Midland Cultural Centre .

Building Community: The work of Howard Rideout

The work of Howard Rideout Architect in Simcoe County is about building community through building relationships. Over the past 12 years each new project has led to rewarding personal connections with the South Georgian Bay community, through many individual clients and unique projects. The selected homes in this exhibition document the spirit of trust and commitment that connect architect and client in creating expressive and engaging works of architecture.

Community Building: Architect in Simcoe County

This exhibition documents the creative process, through architectural illustrations, of the design for the Midland Cultural Centre. The MCC was conceived as a “living room” for the community and as a welcoming beacon on the main street of town, combining a synergistic blend of theatre, presentation space, art and education. In the coming years, this building is expected to become a significant catalyst for community renewal, and to contribute to the emerging role of Midland as a regional arts destination.

The exhibit runs at the Midland Cultural Centre – 333 King St. Midland, Ontario – from June 9 to July 21.
