The exhibition/reception celebrates the 40th Waterloo Architecture Rome Class and displays the work done this term to the members of the class and guests, in particular students from Italian and American Universities. The Studio this year returned to the central archaeological area exploring the potential to ‘open’ a neglected and apparently forgotten part of this immense green space. The site, on the west side of the Caelian Hill (Celio) overlooks the Colosseum and sits opposite the Palatine.
In an essay published in the Canadian Art online edition, “Experiments in Collective Form”, two Toronto artists, Kika Thorne and Adrian Blackwell, reflect on the similarities between Harris’ "common sense revolution” in the 1990s and Doug Ford’s government of today.
Waterloo Architecture alumni Aidan Mitchelmore, Eveline Lam and Kathryn Holbrook-Smith currently have an exhibit, Elucidating Process, in the Azrieli School of Architecture gallery at Carleton University.
