Arriscraft Lecture Series – ARCHITECTURE OUTSIDE THE LINES – investigates the edge of professional architecture, where architects, clients, planners, and other participants in the building world talk about particular aspects of their work outside of the conventional boundaries of the architectural profession. In considering this work, by some of the remarkable individuals engaged in new forms of architecture and new forms of architectural enterprise – all in the Greater Toronto Area – the series mounts a constructive critique of the detached, professional model of architectural practice. It is intent on seeing what might happen next – in building, in engineering, in development, and in design.
