Join us in a discussion exploring how intentions inform the way in which our Cities are designed and experienced. We’ll talk about the design of public space and the resulting narrative and movement throughout the city. Can the echo of intent reverberate louder with each interpretation?

This event is supported with help from Esker Foundation and DIRTT Environmental Solutions.
Focused on the symbiotic relationships between people and places, Larissa Fassler’s artistic practice reflects her interest in the architecture of cities and the way in which places affect people, psychologically and physically, and in turn how people’s perception, understanding and use of place is physically manifest in the built environment that surrounds them. Larissa Fassler: Civic. Centre. is on view at Esker Foundation through December 18th.
Jimenez Lai lived and worked in a desert shelter at Taliesin and resided in a shipping container at Atelier Van Lieshout on the piers of Rotterdam. BUREAU SPECTACULAR is an operation of architectural affairs founded by Lai. It imagines other worlds and engages the design of architecture through telling stories.
Doug Carlyle is a fellow of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, and a Principal at DIALOG.
