Architects and Engineers are invited to the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design to take part in an evening forum being held on November 14th at 7:00pm. Guests can expect to be dazzled by the wonderful world of fabric education design and realization. Our guest speakers for the evening will be Professor Robert Off, Architect and founder of the Institute for Membrane Structures, as well as Leila Araghian, Architect and founder of DIBA Tensile Architecture. Robert and Leila will be sharing their combined wealth of knowledge and details of the projects completed throughout their careers.
The evening’s presentation will focus on the history of fabric architecture, its global presence and the innovations it allows for in modern building applications. Blackwell’s own J. David Bowick and Bryan Schopf will be accompanied by James Gallagher ofTensile Integrity for the purpose of introducing our featured guests and sharing both firms’ current contributions to the Canadian fabric industry.
We welcome students and professionals to join in an extension of this forum the following afternoon, Friday November 15th at 12:00pm, when the Daniels Faculty will be hosting a fabric workshop. The intent of the workshop is to allow for the practical realization of the skills and aspirations born from the evening’s presentation. Attendees will be provided with the tools to create their own vision of fabric structure architecture with the guidance of Professor Off and Leila Araghian.
