Collective Visions

April 9 - April 14, 2015

An exhibition of design work by fourth-year architecture students enrolled in the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.

Combining creative research and advanced design exploration, this exhibition is the culmination of the Bachelor of Architectural Studies and illustrates the very best of craft and technique in drawing, rendering and model-making.

Students will be presenting design projects responding to one of four specific studio briefs: indeterminacy, strangeness and the public realm around Chaudière Falls; performance space in Old Montréal; a new ecological vision for Kanata; and a New Market in the Bayview/Lebreton Flats area of Ottawa.

Addressing questions central to the discipline, this exhibition explores the relationship between architecture and current social, cultural, political and ecological concerns.

The works present the students’ visions of the role architecture plays in the continuing transformation of our urban environment; visions, that is, that are necessarily collective.
