Memorial Chamber Centre Block – Parliament of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario

Located within the heart of the Peace Tower is Canada’s most sacred space. The Memorial Chamber houses bronze and stone altars upon which rest the books of remembrance. In these books are listed the names of the Canadians who gave their lives in the service to their country.

In the fall of 2014, Smith & Barber had the great honour of carving six new altar tops from Hoptonwood stone. These altars will safely cradle these precious books for years to come.
