Taking place September 23 to October 2, 2009, The Roadshow: Architectural Landscapes of Canada is a series of linked, broad-based national events that focus architectural discourse in Canada at the level of the public, the profession, and the schools of architecture. Born in part from a persistent inability to define, The Roadshow is a rethinking of the traditional conception of a singular notion of “Canadian Architecture.” Rather than creating an almost instantly outdated definition, The Roadshow seeks to explore a single moment in Canadian architecture and design. By attempting to collapse the vast distances between place, people and practice The Roadshow creates the potential for a significant, if temporary, point of shared consciousness. Ultimately, the goal of The Roadshow is to promote and facilitate an emergent and evolving discussion regarding contemporary architecture and design in Canada.
The Roadshow comes to the pedestrian greenway between The Professional Faculties Building andthe Education Tower on Thursday, September 24. The event is free and open to the public and will begin at 1900 hours
