The series will stage conversations around the different areas of the Waterloo Architecture curriculum with one broad ambition: “Questioning the canon: In a world of unprecedented possibilities and unforeseen brutalities, what can architectural education do?”

This particular conversation will consider the following sub-question: “With its legacy of confronting difficult questions, how can cultural history evolve to embrace the complex cultural narratives of our global world?”
