Join Azure on March 26th for “New Directions in Design,” an AZURE Talk featuring the jurors of the 2019 AZ Awards.
On the evening of March 26, the AZURE Talks lecture series returns with the panel discussion “New Directions in Design.” Taking place at George Brown’s Waterfront Campus in Toronto, the talk will feature five past and present AZ Awards jurors discussing the scope of their work, what’s on their drawing boards, and what new areas of inquiry – related to new building technologies, construction possibilities and approaches to sustainability – they are exploring within their practice.
Experts in the fields of landscape architecture, interior design, architecture, and furniture and lighting design, the AZURE Talks panelists are:
Since 1983, Janet Rosenberg (who was a jury of the 2015 AZ Awards) has been synonymous with innovative landscape architecture. A focus on the identity of the modern city is at the core of Janet Rosenberg & Studio. From the Pan Am and Parapan Am Aquatics Centre and Field House, being built for the 2015 games, to the blown-glass flowers at the Max Tanenbaum Healing Garden at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, she is transforming Toronto’s outdoor spaces. With diverse projects in Canada, the U.S. and beyond, Rosenberg’s environmentally sensitive, yet innovative, approach is also spreading across the globe.
Architect Pat Hanson is a founding partner of gh3*. Under her leadership, the Toronto firm has established a reputation for design integrity across a range of building typologies and scales, and for creating meaningful connections between architecture and landscape within the urban realm. The firm has designed the June Callwood Park in Toronto, the Trinity College Quadrangle at the University of Toronto, and the Governor General’s Medal-awarded projects Borden Park Pavilion in Edmonton and the Boathouse Studio on Stoney Lake, Ontario. In 2016, Hanson was recognized by the international arcVision Prize for Women and Architecture.
