Carleton’s Forum architecture lecture series returns next week

The Forum Lecture series is a long-held tradition of the Azrieli School of Architecture at Carleton University. First initiated in 1968 and popularized in the 1980s and early 1990s the lecture series was an inspiring event, introducing the Carleton community to leading architectural thinkers of the day. Held during the academic year, approximately one lecture is held per month from the end of September to March. On January 7, the school will host its first Forum Lecture of the new year, coinciding with the National Urban Design Awards.Forum lecture

The National Urban Design Awards 2018 Edition (NUDA) will take place at the Ottawa Art Gallery and includes an awards ceremony and presentations by the recipients. This special event is presented by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the Canadian Institute of Planners and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects.

Re-established in 2004 through the generous endowment of its founding sponsors, Hobin Architecture, IBI Group, GRC Architects, Trinity Development Group, Merkley Supply and Charlesfort Development, the Forum lecture series continues to introduce our students, faculty and the wider Ottawa community to a host of leading practitioners and critics of architecture. As Barry Hobin stated “The importance of the lecture series cannot be stressed enough. It has tremendous opportunities to be a catalyst for better design in the Ottawa area — including the Carleton campus.”

Held in the Alma Duncan Salon at The Ottawa Art Gallery it invites the capital city to engage in emerging ideas and celebrate the architectural profession. Lectures are typically on Monday evening, starting at 6:00pm and free to the public.
