RAIC and CCUSA release proceedings from Virtual Academic Summit on Architecture

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) and the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA) have released the proceedings from the 2022 Academic Summit on Architecture.

The summit presented papers and projects from schools of architecture that featured the latest research from academics and practitioners in the fields of architecture and design.

The year 2022 marked the third Academic Summit on Architecture, a collaborative event between the RAIC and the CCUSA.

“This collaboration is an example of our organizations’ commitment to pursue opportunities for research to inform practice and vice versa, a dialog that is required for the relevancy of architecture. While academia provides the environment to test out ideas on how architecture must respond to current issues, real-life practice ensures that those ideas are grounded in professional challenges,” read the proceedings.

The 2022 Academic Summit focused on the themes from the RAIC’s Strategic Plan, including its Core Values of Integrity, Climate Action, Reconciliation, Social Justice, and Innovation.

“We believe that collectively, we can design the kind of future we all aspire to – where equity thrives, and all life is valued and prioritized,” read the proceedings.
