The founder of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Phyllis Lambert, is stepping down as chairwoman of the organization she founded in 1979.
Lambert is well-respected in the field.
Lambert is the daughter of Samuel Bronfman.
He hired her when she was just 27 years old to oversee construction of the Seagram Building on New York's Park Avenue.
It's considered one of the great architectural works of the 20th century.
She was also a founder of Heritage Montreal and was awarded the Order of Canada.
Lambert is 86 years old.
She says after 35 years stepping aside is the right thing to do.
