Can the buildings that we live in come alive? Could such living buildings help us to create a healthier, more sustainable future? Could they become adaptive, resilient structures that care for the planet while empathizing, comforting and inspiring us? The Living Dialogs podcast brings together scholars and thinkers to collectively reflect on living architecture and its implications for our changing world.

Where can the homeless live? This symposium will bring together two grass-roots organizations seeking to improve the housing situation for chronically homeless and unsheltered individuals in the Region of Waterloo. The first, A Better Tent City is a tiny-house community located on the lot of a former convention centre along Highway 7. After an unofficial shelter in a downtown Kitchener convenience store was shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, residents relocated to the lot.

Prefabrication in mass timber buildings is fast becoming a reality and, through digital design and manufacturing processes, it is having a disruptive effect on the building industry. In order to maintain BC’s lead in innovation in wood and to promote value added processes within the province, it is timely for BC to lead a symposium on the state-of-the-art in Wood Prefabricated Buildings. The symposium is meant to bring together architects, engineers and fabricators who are interested in the future of prefabrication in wood.

What does it really mean to be a smart city or healthy city and are we even close to living sustainably in urban environments? Will the pandemic and rise of working from home affect how we design city life and civic spaces now and in the future? What does an age-friendly city look like over the next couple of decades? These timely questions and more will be addressed by a panel of alumni and academia experts as we examine where architecture and city design are headed in light of a great social upheaval.

The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of the panel of experts.

A Zoom link will be sent to those who register for this session.
