Kenn Norman, CEO & Jonathan Walford, Curator, co-founders of the Fashion History Museum speak with students from Ryerson University’s School of Architecture during their site visit to 74 Queen St East in Cambridge on February 25th, 2015. Stefany Kawka shares her passion for Hespeler Village as a local restaurateur and Chair of the BIA. Students were conducting field measurements and gathering historical, demographic and cultural clues to inform their case study of the former post office building. The site was chosen as the subject building for the 2015 CSC Student Design Competition sponsored by the Grand Valley and Toronto Chapters of Construction Specifications Canada.
Special thanks to Lary Turner, a local historian for leading students in a walking tour of the village which included a view of the Riverband Lofts development site, a visit to the Heritage Centre and tour of the Hespeler Carnegie Library.
The FHM story fast forwards to opening day on Saturday, June 27th with a sample of the exhibit “Back to the Eighties”. Follow the developing story at:
