Day three of the Festival of Architecture opened with an insightful presentation on the need for carbon neutral buildings by Edward Mazria, founder of Architecture 2030. Equally as compelling was “Architecture by Us Not Without Us”, a panel discussion on Indigenous Architecture with perspectives from Australia, New Zealand, The United States of America and Canada.
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.
