Sise, Hazen, 1906-1974 : Hazen Edward Sise, born in Montreal, Quebec, was educated at the Royal Military College, McGill University School of Architecture, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture. Sise apprenticed with the influential Le Corbusier in Paris in 1930 and participated in the "Rejected Architects Exhibition" in New York City. He worked in Paris in 1931, then in London from 1933 to 1936. In December 1936, Sise met Dr. Norman Bethune and joined his Hispano-Canadian Blood Transfusion Institute in the Spanish Civil War. Returning to Montreal in November 1937, he became active in the Committee to Aid Spanish Democracy, the Friends of the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion and H.W. Herridge's New Democracy Movement. In 1938-1939, Sise worked as a correspondent and photographer with The New World Illustrated, as well as authoring radio scripts for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 1941 he joined the National Film Board and served as the Film Officer attached to the Canadian Embassy in Washington, 1942-1943. In 1949 Sise joined the Montreal architectural firm of McDougall, Smith and Fleming. In 1954 he assisted in the formation of a co-operative practice which in 1955 became the partnership of Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulos, Lebensold, Sise. Also known as ARCOP, the firm has been involved in several major architectural projects in Canada, including the Confederation Center in Charlottetown, the National Arts Center in Ottawa, and Place Bonaventure in Montreal. After retiring from ARCOP in 1968, Sise became a consultant on architectural heritage for the National Capital Commission.
