Event – McGill School of Architecture – "The Roadshow: Architectural Landscapes of Canada"

“The Roadshow: Architectural Landscapes of Canada is a series of linked, broad-based national events that focus architectural discourse in Canada at the level of the public, the profession, and the schools of architecture. Travelling from Vancouver to Halifax, each of the events will take place at a school of architecture. At every stop, each of the nine participating architects and designers will have ten minutes to present one project and articulate this project’s engagement within a consistent framework around which intentionality and meaning have emerged. Ultimately, the goal of The Roadshow is to promote and facilitate an emergent and evolving discussion regarding contemporary architecture and design in Canada.

The Roadshow brings together nine critical architects and designers from across Canada.
