Taylor X Design Symposium coming to Calgary this month
The Taylor X Symposium celebrates 10 years of the Taylor Seminar Block Course at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS). Each year EVDS brings emerging designers in the fields of digital fabrication, design and computation in architecture to Calgary to explore design research proposals and prototypes with a group of students.
This year the Faculty of Environmental Design and the Laboratory for Integrative Design are bringing back to Calgary past Taylor Lecturers for a week of lectures and discussions about the design research and making in contemporary practice. Taylor X brings together award winning architects, artists and makers to explore how innovation and research can inform design practices across scales.
This event is being supported by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurial Thinking.
