Transformations

BY SENG TSOI
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Looking back, it's easy to see a connective thread, the mix of efforts and experiences that have brought me here today. This presentation traces back through 20 years of creative work, conceived within the space of numerous disciplines, and made with a wide range of mediums. Each project, however different, all share a belief that even in unexpected places, with the most modest means, there is something special to be made.

Mass Timber: Changing the Way We Build Our Cities

BY ROBERT JACKSON
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Mass timber is really the newest way to build a building in over 100 years. Thanks to new manufacturing technologies, these massive blocks of wood are allowing engineers to push the limits of what timber can do as a structural material. I’ll be sharing my experiences of working and designing with timber, why I’m inspired by it, and how it’s changing the way we build our cities.

Visual Tectonics

BY MICHAEL ELKAN
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Photography and architecture are very closely related. It is through photographic images that architecture is widely seen, known and understood. Architects think in space-time dimensions but usually employ 2D media to develop their ideas. Architecture is truly experienced only in real space, time and scale. The photographer’s task is to reverse engineer that reality through acute observation and to construct a relatively small 2D image that begins to evoke the experience of being there.

The Nomadic Academic

BY LESLIE VAN DUZER
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Whether a landscape, a building, a practice or a person, Leslie Van Duzer’s projects always begin with a fascinating encounter. Hear those stories as you walk down the West Coast of Denmark, visit Loos’s Villa Müller in Prague and his interiors in Pilsen, witness artists Serra and LeWitt respond to Mies’s architecture in Germany, enter the world of Atelier Nishikata in Tokyo, meet Rudolf Arnheim in Michigan, and tour a Vancouver treasure, all in 6 minutes 40 seconds.
