Symposium 2: Mar. 7 & 8

Symposium 2: Environment, Culture and Community Engagement
How do we balance these precious resources as we design our future?

To initiate a new school of architecture, creating an educational environment unlike any other, we must establish a learning and research environment reflective of Saskatchewanís strong traditions of innovation, determination and rich cultural production. Real engagement with our local communities and environments can have a significant influence on how the study of architecture is practiced and taught within the Province.

    Finally!! 30 years ago I had to leave the province to get my education in architecture… and they were talking about a school of acrchitecture in saskatchewan at that time. One can only hope that it does not take another decade to bring this idea to fruition
