In conjunction with Waterloo Architecture’s 50th Anniversary lecture series and exhibition, several student initiatives will be hosting a lunchtime conversation series at the Design at Riverside gallery. Following the theme of Questioning the Canon, this conversation series invites alumni and guests to address the overarching question: In a world of unprecedented possibilities and unforeseen brutalities what can architectural education do?
On March 12, Lori Campbell, director of the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre, will be in conversation with Treaty Lands, Global Stories on practice in education. The event will be held at Design at Riverside gallery beginning at 12:30pm. Coffee and snacks will be available.
