Can Quebec learn from Soviet-era architecture?

Originally from Kirkland, Jason Tsironis is a graduate of the School of Architecture at McGill. He's presently working in London at the firm Caruso St John.

Tsironis has just been awarded the Canada Council Prix de Rome for emerging architects.

He will be studying the evolution of Soviet architecture, and he says his work will also apply to Quebec and Canada, when it comes to finding new uses for empty churches.
