Dear Waterloo Architecture students:
Please join us for the Annual Architecture Student Awards Banquet on Wednesday June 20th at 6:00PM in the loft.
The evening will be a celebration of student achievement over the past year and a night to reflect on your own achievements and enjoy dinner with colleagues, faculty and staff. WASA has generously provided funding for the main buffet with additional funding being contributed from SWAG. In order for everyone to enjoy a hearty meal, the other courses (appetizers and desserts) will be potluck.

All are welcome!
Can architecture respond to you, and feel, and care? Can it start, in primitive ways, to come alive? Find out how the collaboration between and Philip Beesley and the Living Architecture Systems group merges innovative structure, chemistry, artificial intelligence and immersive soundscapes into a visually stunning interactive environment. Philip will share examples from numerous international projects, and will reveal how his own vision has been transformed by working with the intimate dimensions of clothing in collaborations with Iris van Herpen.

An examination of the chilling role architecture played in constructing Auschwitz.
The Evidence Room is a powerful installation which reconstructs key objects used in the forensic analysis of the architecture of Auschwitz. Historian Robert Jan van Pelt introduced the objects as evidence in a court case to demonstrate that Auschwitz was purposefully designed as a death camp.
