06 Thematic Residency: Mountainstandardtimelab

Led by Andrew King, this interdisciplinary architecture laboratory consists of a structured studio developed around the theme of critical landscape, and runs from August 17-28, 2009. The theoretical foundation of the Mountainstandardtimelab (MSTLAB) is based on ideas of landscape and memory, tourism, colonialism, and authenticity of experience. The Lab is geared towards senior architecture students, either in the last years of their undergraduate degree, or beginning their graduate work.


Andrew King is an architect, author, critic, curator, and educator. He was the recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts Prix de Rome and was awarded a Canadian Architect Award of Excellence.


The Banff Centre is a non-degree granting postsecondary institution. As such, appropriate credit hours may be available for completion of the Lab.


The application deadline is April 30, 2009, and the program fee is $1,395, which includes shared accommodation and light meal plan at The Banff Centre.
