The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada elects individuals who have demonstrated great dedication to bettering their communities and their profession. Joining their ranks, David McRobie was formally inducted into the College of Fellows of the RAIC at the 2017 Festival of Architecture in Ottawa. Congratulations David!
The second day of the 2017 Festival of Architecture was a busy one; with lecture topics ranging from Housing in Remote Northern First Nations Communities to 3D Laser Scanning and the Built Environment, there is surely something of interest for everyone.
For Intern Architects and those enrolled in the Admission Course, day two provided attendees with lectures and courses focused on navigating the Ontario Building Code, the role of the architect in bidding and tendering, and the importance of balancing client and municipal planning objectives throughout the design process.
Yesterday marked day one of the 2017 RAIC/OAA Festival of Architecture. To celebrate Canada’s 150th, this year’s festival offers events and lectures themed around the recognition of the architectural achievements of today, as well as the role architecture has played in shaping Canadian built heritage and cultural expression.
For those enrolled in the Ontario Association of Architects Admission Course, day one of the festival provided an exciting introduction to the practice of architecture in Ontario.
Stay tuned for more updates as the festival progresses!
