“When do looks matter more than performance?”

November 03, 2016
2 Sussex Avenue, Toronto, Ontario

When do looks matter more than performance? will explore the dynamic between aesthetics and metrics in the built environment. How can the presumed obverse relationship between design and building technology be viewed more strategically? To what extent does the choice of either mask architecture’s political agency? Featured speakers include our 2016/17 Frank Gehry International Visiting Chairs Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee of the Los Angeles-based firm Johnston Marklee, in conversation with Michelle Addington, Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture.

Moderated by Associate Professor Robert Levit, Director of the Master of Architecture Program at the Daniels Faculty.
