October’s POP // CAN // CRIT 2018 now open for registration

Registration is now open for the 2018 edition of POP // CAN // CRIT — The Business of Architecture in Canada! This year’s event will take place in Vancouver, BC on Friday, October 19. POP // CAN // CRIT

Formed in 2016, POP // CAN // CRIT is an annual, national symposium that looks critically at popular topics and the peripheries of architectural practice, within a Canadian context. It brings together leading voices from the profession and larger design field, who are changing the way we see and understand architecture. The annual event challenges current practice, examines contemporary issues, and proposes new solutions to the future of architecture practice.

The 2018 symposium will bring together architects, academics, and media and business strategy professionals to discuss the business of architecture in Canada. Panel discussions will focus how the art and business of architecture come together, how we communicate architecture, how business topics are currently being taught or not taught in architecture schools in Canada, the growing awareness of the gender gaps that exist in the profession, as well as how and whether architecture firms are succession planning – and what this all means for the future of architecture in Canada.

NEW THIS YEAR — POP // CAN // CRIT attendees will be eligible to receive continuing education credits through the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), for all sessions attended. There is also special member pricing for RAIC members.

Not able to get to Vancouver? Not a problem! POP // CAN // CRIT is also excited to announce it’s first live-streaming event. Join us online on October 19 via webcast and be eligible for continuing education credits as well! Webinar registration to open in August.

Presented by Spacing Magazine in partnership with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) and the Azrieli School of Architecture at Carleton University, POP // CAN // CRIT opened for registration on July 20.For more information and to register visit the event’s official website, linked here.
