Call for innovative seismic design projects for 2012 Design Exchange exhibition

An exhibition will be held at the Design Exchange in Toronto in November/December 2012 relating to innovative approaches to seismic design. Featuring drawings, models and various multilmedia platforms, the exhibition aims to convey the cutting-edge character of some of the most creative projects around the world. Curators Effie Bouras of Mechanik Design Office and Professor Ghyslaine McClure of McGill University are seeking completed building projects and research that engage an innovative approach to seismic design requirements – buildings that have been designed to resist earthquakes in the typically seismic zones of the West Coast, China, Japan, New Zealand, etc.

The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2012. Please send your proposals to with “DX exhibit” in the subject line.
