In Honour of Andrew Levitt, celebrating the legacy of a Professor Emeritus dedicated to teaching on care, and with care.
Please join us for Cultural Districts, the lecture will be held from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in the Main Lecture Hall at the Waterloo School of Architecture.
The lecture will be feature panelists Tura Cousins Wilson, SOCA, Cheryll Case, CP Planning and moderator: Linda Zhang, Waterloo Architecture.
This is the second in a series of five lectures on the topic of maintenance.
Praxes of Care asks, “what is an architecture of care?” Over four terms–Fall 2021 to Winter 2023–a series of conversations will bring together two or more architects, designers, researchers, artists, activists, and care workers to discuss care processes according to the themes of Attention, Action, Communication, and Maintenance. The series is curated by faculty, staff, and representatives of student groups: Treaty Lands Global Stories, Bridge, and the Sustainability Collective. Recent calls for change have shifted the discipline toward the underlying social and ecological processes enabled by the production of architecture. By listening to and learning about care practices from interdisciplinary perspectives, we can begin to reshape the discipline of architecture into a form of care.
