The Perimeter Series: Design and National Identity

September 14, 2014
by Canadian Architect

A0 (ALSO Collective + Mason Studio) is hosting The Perimeter Series – a series of panel discussions on issues related to contemporary design practices, academia and industry. This third and final panel of the 2014 Perimeter Series tackles a topic close to home – or distant depending on your vantage point. Design and National Identity investigates the interplay between design, geography, politics, economics, history, and how they shape – and are shaped by – national identity.

This event is hosted by the Design Exchange, and moderated by Shauna Levy. The panelists are: Michael Prokopow, OCAD University; Vanessa Eckstein, Blok Design; Todd Falkowsky, Canadian Design Resource; and Catherine Osborne, Azure Magazine.

The Perimeter Series was developed by A0, the joint efforts of ALSO Collective and Mason Studio. The studios share philosophies of design, but originate from two distinct practices. ALSO occupies a space in digital media and graphic design, while Mason inhabits physical interior space. The Perimeter Series was developed as an opportunity to share in the conversation between the studios to explore a shift in the boundaries of design. All are welcome to take part in their discussions!

The event takes place from 7:00pm to 8:30pm on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at the Design Exchange, located at 234 Bay Street in Toronto.

It is free to attend, but registration is required at
