Reception: Tuesday, October 14, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Featuring "Undocumented: The Architecture of Migrant Detention" by Daniels Faculty alumna Tings Chak (MArch 2014) and "Pure Space: Public Space Transformations in Latin American Slums" by Elisa Silva.

This exhibition features the work of two architects working at nearly opposite ends of the Americas. Their respective projects look closely at the political and material economies of space that permeate public and institutional settings occupied by some of North and South America’s most marginalized individuals: the informal settlements within large urban centres of Latin America, such as Rio de Janeiro’s favelas or Medelin’s comunas; and the landscapes and interiors of Canadian detention facilities – the re-purposed motels, jails, and ‘processing’ centers where migrants and immigrants become ‘detainees’.

Derived from an old parable, the term PARDES, meaning ‘orchard’ in Hebrew, has come to symbolize the realm of Jewish mysticism. In the legend entitled Four Entered the Orchard, four great sages who enter the esoteric practice meet different fates: one dies, one loses his mind, and one forsakes the Jewish tenets. Only one enters in peace and leaves in peace.

Room 103, 230 College Street

Via a series of projects ranging in scale from the shed to the master plan, Peter Rose’s talk, “Strategies Across Scale," will address issues relating to a design process that is research based, highly site specific, and strategic in intent. 

Peter Rose is a recognized innovator in architectural design. Since beginning his practice in Montreal in 1978, Peter has received numerous awards for institutional, residential, and urban design projects. The scale of his work ranges from large urban interventions - including the Old Port of Montreal Waterfront Master Plan, the Low2No Master Plan for Jätkäsaari, Finland, and major cultural institutions such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture -  to residential projects including the Housing Tower at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, East House, and renovations. All are united by his sensitivity to materials and the relationship between the built environment and the landscape.

Room 103, 230 College Street
Following the lecture, audience members are invited to continue the conversation with the speaker in the Graduate Student Lounge, located in the lower level of 230 College Street.

The work of a landscape architect comprises a diverse spectrum of actions and mandates. Designing and building projects is only the tip of the iceberg. Today’s landscape architect is at the forefront of understanding, defining and transforming the world around us.

This presentation will paint a portrait of the profession’s wide-reaching potentials through 13 of NIPPAYSAGE’s current projects.
