Book Launch – Weather + Architecture

This is a vast but interesting topic to explore and may deal with notion of permanence/shifting relationship between architecture and nature.

DATE | 22 February, 5:00-7:00pm

LOCATION | John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, & Design, University of Toronto, 230 College Street

INFORMATION | http://www.daniels.utoronto.ca/events/event/2010/01/5082

DESCRIPTION | The dynamic, turbulent and unpredictable forces that comprise the weather are shared by economic cycles of production and consumption. We are at the cusp of an intriguing moment wherein the cycles of economics and weather have collided to instigate a new green economy. The consumptive aspects of ‘green’ have granted architecture a moment to explore its nemesis – instability and disorder – the key characteristics of weather. -arium: Weather + Architecture is a research investigation carried out during the 2008 Gehry Chair studio at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape under the direction of Jürgen Mayer H. and Neeraj Bhatia that centers upon how to renegotiate the relationship between architecture and weather. Composed of three sections – The Weather Report, The Weather Forecast, and The Weather Outlook – that respectively, research, design and theorize on weather and architecture, -arium offers a guide for both architectural designer and critics. The University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design invites you to join celebrating the launch of –arium: Weather + Architecture.
