New architecture collective to host Small Practice Marketplace event in Vancouver
The Field Collective, a group of independently operating small architecture practices, will be hosting a Small Practice Marketplace event in Vancouver later this month.
The Field Collective, a group of independently operating small architecture practices, will be hosting a market-style event later this month.
The event, called the Small Practice Marketplace, will have a market hall-style and aims to bring together architects, designers and members of the public to meet the people behind B.C.’s small architecture practices.
The Field Collective seeks to empower its members to support more affordable, high-quality housing options, create more inclusive and climate-resilient cities, and cultivate a more forward-thinking culture of design.
The Small Practice Marketplace will take place at 529 Carrall Street in Vancouver on November 22, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. Founding members will share a few short words around 6:00 p.m. about their goals as a collective.
The Field Collective, which was launched in October of this year, was born from several leading small firms in Vancouver, including Motiv, MIZA, Haeccity Studio and TOAD.
The collective’s official launch event, Reverse Crit, that took place last month, saw roles reversed as local practices presented in-progress work to a student jury at the University of British Columbia’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
The collective is currently extending a call to welcome practices of under 10 employees in the province as new members.
