This month’s Vancouver Urbanist Meetup has a special twist. Each Sunday during the month of March, the Museum of Vancouver is hosting SALA SPEAKS @MOV:
With an aim to spark participatory and accessible discussions about the role of architecture in our community and beyond, SALA SPEAKS @MOV is a 4-part series presented in partnership with the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) at the University of British Columbia, that invites their faculty to speak to the wider issues, inspirations, and challenges that configure their research, practice, and teaching here in Vancouver.
This weeks presentations are on the theme of ‘Constructing’:
Tackling the notion of “constructing”, Matthew Soules will talk about micro-Infrastructures and residences, and share thoughts on public protest. Inge Roecker’s presentation will share creative notions around the theme, through a consideration of ‘urban acupuncture’ for Vancouver’s chinatown.
Given that I would like to attend this event, and expect that many Vancouver urbanists do as well, I am pushing back the start-time of this months get-together until 4pm and hosting it at a nearby pub.
Come out to enjoy a drink, say hi to your fellow urbanists, and compare notes or get a de-brief of what Matthew and Inge had to say.
As always, feel free to drop in when you can and stay as long as you want. We’ll be there from 4 pm until at least 6pm. If you are early, the reservation is under “Yuri” You can RSVP on Facebook or Eventbrite, or simply show up if you are in the neighbourhood..
