Gregg Pasquarelli, founding partner of SHoP in New York lectures at 7:00pm on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture in Cambridge. SHoP is a New York-based architectural firm with projects completed or underway on all four continents.  

The firm has set the standard for creative exploration in the field of architecture and modelled a new way forward with its unconventional approach to design. At the heart of the firm’s method is a willingness to question accepted patterns of practice, coupled with the courage to expand, where necessary, beyond the architect’s traditional roles. Celebrated designs such as the Porter House apartments, the East River Waterfront, and the Barclays Center Arena have cemented SHoP’s reputation for smart, successful, transformative neighbourhood interventions. In 2009, SHoP was honoured with the Smithsonian/Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Award. In 2014, Fast Company named SHoP the “Most Innovative Architecture Firm in the World.”

The lecture takes place in the Lawrence Cummings Lecture Theatre at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, located at 7 Melville Street South in Cambridge, Ontario.
