Thinking Local with Architecture for Humanity Toronto

Join Architecture for Humanity for a series of events discussing communities and architecture. How do communities impact architecture, and how does architecture impact communities? We know how to create more sustainable buildings, but how can we create more sustainable communities? As our lives become increasingly interconnected, how do the spaces, in which we interact, adapt to an ever-changing social landscape? These issues and more will be explored in three dynamic evenings with local and international architects who have pioneered socially engaged design practices.

Taking place on April 23, 2013 at the Centre for Social Innovation Annex, Thinking Local brings together Joe Lobko, Partner, DTAH; Charles Rosenberg, Partner, Hilditch Architect;and Janna Levitt, Partner, Levitt Goodman Architects. The event is moderated by Ian Chodikoff, Director, Farrow Partnership Architects Inc. Refreshments begin at 6:00pm, followed by the discussion from 6:45pm to 8:00pm.

Admission is pay what you can (suggested $10 which includes one raffle ticket for one free 3-month community membership at any CSI location). Complimentary coffee and tea provided by Cafe Pamenar.

The Centre for Social Innovation Annex is located at 720 Bathurst Street in Toronto.

The next session takes place on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, where the discussion concerns thinking global.
