To understand how a building is built, one must understand that there are two key players within this process: the client and the architect. Taking place at Architecture at York Quay Centre in Toronto, Building Partners is an exhibition that explores the relationship between these two and how they can come together effectively.
* What is the relationship between architect and client?
* Is a building a compromise or collaboration?
* Can the client/architect relationship lead to a better building?
Canadian architecture firms Dubbeldam Design Architects, Ian MacDonald Architect Inc. and Moriyama & Teshima Architects explore the relationship between architect and client. The exhibition also features an installation by Jeff Goodman Studio.
The objective of this architecture gallery is to present exhibitions that will educate, challenge and question the thoughts and ideas informing contemporary architecture. It is a multi-functional space which is able to present exhibitions, act as a classroom or a meeting space for the discussion of issues relating to architecture.
The opening reception takes place from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Friday, September 24, 2010 and the exhibition runs until Sunday, January 2, 2011.
