An examination of the chilling role architecture played in constructing Auschwitz.
The Evidence Room is a powerful installation which reconstructs key objects used in the forensic analysis of the architecture of Auschwitz. Historian Robert Jan van Pelt introduced the objects as evidence in a court case to demonstrate that Auschwitz was purposefully designed as a death camp.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for the opening of an exhibition that marks the 50th anniversary of Waterloo Architecture.
Imagine having only 1 static slide and 3 minutes to explain the breadth and significance of your research to a non-specialist audience. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition asks University of Waterloo research-based master's and doctoral students to do just that.
The 3MT is free to attend!
