Webday Wednesdays - Convergence of Art and Architecture in Practice and Education

 Registration is closed for this event
For the month of April, the RAIC is pleased to present a weekly series on the subject of Design Processes.


Convergence of Art and Architecture in Practice and Education
Date: April 24, 2019
Presenter: Andrew King

This session will discuss applied and academic research in trans-disciplinary research. This will include the intersection of art and architecture in the work from the Prix de Rome project “romalux”, the trans-disciplinary international design competition winning “Place des Montréalaises” and the ongoing research within the performing architecture studio at McGill University’s School of Architecture.

At the completion of this session, the participant/learner will be able to:

  • define trans-disciplinary practice as a broad linkage across art, architecture, landscape;
  • further understand the power of speculative work on framing and furthering an applied research agenda in practice;
  • recognize a research thread across 30 years of practice.

Continuing education learning hours: 1 credit
