Can you help me find this house?
I found this photograph while researching my current film project – “Finding John Lingwood” – at the University of Waterloo Library Special Collections and Archives.
It’s actually a black and white copy of the a colour photography Personal Studios’ Bob Nicol made for John Lingwood, a modernist architect who practised in Kitchener 1955 – 1996.
The photo has been taped down to table top and we can see a bit of the photographer’s shoe in the upper lefthand corner of the frame.
I’ve been researching and filming for the past year to piece together a story about one of the Regions leading mid-century architects. Lingwood, along with six other firms, created the rich stock of modernist buildings that give Waterloo Region its distinct built environment.
I believe this house, that makes good use of John’s favour materials – stone and wood – is among his works and still stands somewhere in the Region.
I’d love to hear from its owner or someone who knows its owner or location. I’m sure there is someone out there who recognizes this place.
You can contact me here (see upper right) or on the Facebook page for the film “Finding John Lingwood.”
Please feel free to post this to your networks or pass the link on by email.
