In early October, a group of us from BKDI who are passionate about design went to the U of C Environmental Design series “Design Matters”. The speakers that presented were from the Architectural firms Snohetta in Oslo and Patkau from Vancouver. An inspiring body of work from both practices! The presentations were followed by a panel discussing new ways of planning and designing in our own city supported by some very bright ideas from the top students.
A great dialogue ensued about design… architecture… and planning… all great thought starters! And of course, the evening started with our group enjoying a pre-event of “designer food and drinks” at KI.
Looking forward to the next evening in the series!
