Williamson Chong, the award-winning Toronto-based architecture and design office of Betsy Williamson, Shane Williamson and Donald Chong, creates work that situates digital fabrication and wood construction in a broader cultural context, linking together theories of design and technology with ecological aspects of building and construction. The firm’s work is the focus of an exhibition at the Corkin Gallery in Toronto that explores wood’s material history by extracting artifacts from a digital exploration of the effect of mass movements in the landscape on the growth and form of trees.
Also on show will be On Architecture and Structure, a group exhibition that includes works by: Barbara Astman, Frank Mädler, David Urban, Thaddeus Holownia, Ramón Serrano, Sharon Switzer, Grit Schwerdtfeger, Chad Gerth, Gina Rorai, Andrés Marroquín and Max Regenberg.
The exhibitions open with a reception on Thursday, November 20th at 6:00pm.
