Museum of Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia
On October 8, 2015 at 5:30pm, join the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada in their 5th year of partnership with the Museum of Vancouver, as they present the first in their three-part lecture series aptly called Culture: Adaptation and Translation. The event features Lola Sheppard and William Trousdale discussing First Nations/Inuit culture; architect Patrick Stewart moderates. In Nunavut, a place of unique indigenous values, identity, and culture coexist with newly designed environments that reflect a vision for a Canadian North that demands that architects and planners rethink how buildings and infrastructure should operate. Architect and co-curator of Arctic Adaptations Lola Sheppard and distinguished planner William Trousdale will discuss some of the professional, technical and cultural issues of building and capacity building in Nunavut and other First Nations communities. The evening’s moderator will be architect Patrick Stewart MRAIC, a member of the Nisga’a First Nation.
