DoUC loves Venice.
The Department is a strategic partner with Jae-Sung Chon + 5468796 Architecture who are the Migrating Landscapes team that is curating the Canadian Pavilion at the 2012 Architecture Biennial in Venice.
In the lead up to Venice Sept 2012 the Migrating Landscapes team are organizing a cross Canada competition/exhibition series asking Canadian architects to speak about their experience of migration. The first exhibition opens tonight at the Museum of Vancouver running until Nov. 27. Our contribution to Migrating Landscapes is a series of large scale infographics exploring regional histories related to immigration and its impact on Canadian architecture. We are also developing a series of interactive installations that will serve as collecting pools for exhibition visitors own experience of migration.
Exhibitions are happening in Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax, with the national finals in Winnipeg Spring 2012.
