Join Architecture for Humanity’s Toronto chapter for the last night of their lecture series discussing communities and architecture. All the way from Portland, Oregon, Sergio Palleroni will discuss his work in developing countries as well as his contributions to BaSiC Initiative: a program that supports community partnerships, from housing solutions for Native Americans, to housing and community services for migrant farm workers. How do communities impact architecture, and how does architecture impact communities? These issues and more will be explored in this last night of the What Next? lecture and symposium series.
