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.
Within Practice and Education, Architecture often results in a final product – an occupied building, a tender package, a presentation, a final review, a rendering. However, the ‘finished’ artifact is the culmination of countless iterations produced over time. With each spatial, material, and conceptual study, new ideas are formed and discovered while others are edited or “shelved”. This is the creative process.
Elucidating Process brings the background work behind architectural production into the public eye. Organized around four themes, Theoretical Framing, Digitally Sketching, Photographic Explorations, and Physically Making, Elucidating Process displays these ‘shelved’ ideas in order to engage the larger public with a more holistic depiction of architectural thinking.
