Administrative history

MacLennan Associates Architects is an architectural firm in the sole proprietorship of Neil Kirk MacLennan, MRAIC, OAA. Mr. MacLennan began his architectural vocation in 1954 and has since then involved himself in all the major aspects of professional and service practice in the business. His education in the professions of architecture and archaeology took place in several countries and he served internships under Louis I. Kahn in the U.S. and Heikki Siren in Helsinki. From 1959-1971, institutional building design was the mainstay of the partnerships that Mr. MacLennan was involved with. This work resulted in major hospitals in Toronto, Barrie, Kitchener, Brockville and Kingston. Since 1974 MacLennan and associates has competed for a wide variety of building types and complexity, with a specialization in the restoration of older and period buildings. The firm was established in 1972 to be a team of five highly-qualified persons. Workload has caused staff increases to as many as twelve but the firm has attempted to maintain the smaller number over the long term. From 1977 the firm served as a training office for the School of Architecture at the University of Waterloo. The firm closed in 1996 upon the retirement of Mr. MacLennan.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of client files, architectural drawings, photographs and slides, some business records, accounts and correspondence accumulated during the lifetime of the firm. The material relates to the various projects that this firm carried out, in Kingston and surrounding area, between its inception in 1972 and its closing in 1996. There is a small amount of material from other sources, primarily the firm of Smith and MacLennan where Mr. MacLennan was a partner before he established his own firm. There is also a small amount of material that illustrates something of the approach to design taken by Mr. MacLennan.
