West Coast creativity to be focus at Festival of Architecture in Vancouver

VANCOUVER

West Coast creativity will get special attention at the upcoming 2011 Festival of Architecture.

The four-day festival, an Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) and Architecture Canada/Royal Architectural Institute of Canada partnership, will take place May 24-27 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Themed “Architecture on the Edge,” the festival will acknowledge the many ways in which the profession continues to push the envelope. Front and centre will be the style and innovation that distinguishes B.C. architects and architecture, including West Coast approaches to place-and space-making.

The festival is expected to bring together about 800 architects and allied professionals from around the province and across the country.

Delegates will explore best practices, new challenges and innovative ways in which architects are leaving their indelible mark on the built and natural environments.

“More than ever, architects are being called upon to find workable, lasting solutions to today’s environmental and societal challenges,” says Architecture Canada/RAIC president Stuart Howard. “By showcasing latest trends and fresh perspectives, this festival will provide an ideal opportunity to both educate and inspire.”

The four-day program will include six streams of professional development sessions, numerous speakers and a selection of professional recognition celebrations.

Detailed information is available at the 2011 Festival of Architecture.
