Event Details

Wednesday, November 14
6pm - 8pm

UrbanSpace Gallery, 401 Richmond St. West (first floor)


What gives a physical place meaning? How do we decide which historic sites are culturally significant? "Cultural Landscape theory" provides new answers to these questions. Julian Smith will explore the meaning of cultural landscape and how we create it in our communities. He will also examine how this approach has informed his own experiences as an architect and as an educator, and its ongoing impact on the heritage conservation field.

Julian Smith is Canada's leading conservation architect and the Executive Director of Willowbank School. He formerly served as Chief Restoration Architect for the National Historic Sites program and has worked throughout Canada and abroad as a private practitioner. Recently he acted as the Canadian delegate to UNESCO to advise the new international  recommendations on Historic Urban Landscapes. As an educator, he is the founder of Carleton University's Graduate program in Heritage Conservation, and currently serves as Executive Director of Willowbank School. Willowbank's Heritage Conservation program takes a unique approach to education, balancing both theoretical learning and hands-on craft skills.
