Architecture + Place

June 5, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Architecture + Place

This session is part of the 2019 Summer Professional Development Series.

Architecture is always built in a geographic and cultural place. As such, design must respond sympathetically and creatively to many interdependent conditions. Traditional teachings of Indigenous Peoples promote ways of living and building in symbiotic relation with nature by encouraging respect for the environment, at a technical and spiritual level, and planning in view of Seven Generations – i.e. learning from ancestors and considering long-term consequences of present decisions for future generations. Incorporating the wisdom of Indigenous placemaking into design education and practice is not only necessary for ongoing reconciliation, but urgent in the wake of global crises related to climate change and natural resource depletion.

This session will discuss architecture’s impact on collective identity and cultural vitality. Designing buildings with a respect for community, regional context and scale, land and resources, and cultural heritage and vitality are all paramount to achieve a symbiosis between place, people and architecture.
