Designed by Hobin Architecture, the new School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO) building was completed in just 43 days in the heart of Little Italy. The contemporary, purpose-built design is quintessential to the development of photography, with room for the SPAO Centre Gallery, classrooms and the most well-appointed darkroom in the Ottawa region.
