Join the RAIC in our inaugural Showcase series, a collaboration between Continuing Education and Honours and Awards programs. The series, running from September to November 2022, aims to shed light on the amazing projects and practices receiving recognition today, and on the people, and their motivations and ideas behind them.
Our third and final session of the season will be presented on November 29, 2022, at 1 p.m. ET. The session will feature the Governor General’s Medal in Architecture- winning Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre by Formline Architecture.
Alfred Waugh, president and founding principal of Formline Architecture, will present his project, followed by a moderated discussion with RAIC Honours and Awards Manager, and recently licensed architect, Amanda Shore, and conclude with a Q&A session with event participants.
In this 90-minute session, we plan to delve into the story behind the finished project and talk about the creative and design process within the scope of an entire project.
This program seeks to educate architects, intern architects, and non-architects alike, making ‘architecture,’ and all it encompasses, more accessible and engaging to everyone.
