Arriscraft Lecture - Best Practices in City Building by Jennifer KeesmaatExport this event to calendar

Thursday, January 31, 2013 — 6:45 PM EST

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. 

WATERLOO|ARCHITECTURE has invited George Baird as an informal commentator for the entire series, where he will lend his broad experience and critical gifts to the discussion of issues posed in the lectures. Baird is former Dean of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto, a partner in the Toronto-based architecture and urban design firm Baird Sampson Neuert Architects, and the former G. Ware Travelstead Professor of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. He has published extensively in architectural history and theory and lectured widely throughout the world. George Baird is an insightful critic of architecture and its attendant enterprises. Professor Baird holds an Honorary Degree in Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
