Migrating Landscapes Comes to Toronto
TORONTO - Migrating Landscapes is a nation-wide competition and series of exhibitions that explores how Canadian architects and designers ages 45 and under have been influenced by migration and immigration.
The Ontario Regional Exhibition opens at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place on February 6, giving visitors a chance to see original residential designs by young Ontario architects and designers and vote for their favourite before they travel to the world-renowned Venice Biennale in Architecture.
The exhibition will feature videos, in which each young Ontario entrant talks about how their personal experiences of migration have affected them as designers, together with architectural models of dwellings that reflect on these experiences. The videos and models will be placed into a wooden exhibition infrastructure, representing an act of ‘settling’ into a ‘new landscape’.
“We are proud to be a strategic partner because every day, our members create and build well-designed and well-planned communities across the GTA,” said Andrei Zaretski on behalf of BILD.
Brookfield Place is one of seven venues hosting regional exhibitions of Migrating Landscapes across the country. A total of 26 entries from Ontario (created by individuals and teams) will be on display in Brookfield Place.
Migrating Landscapes is organized and curated by 5468796 Architecture + Jae-Sung Chon. The Ontario Regional Exhibition of Migrating Landscapes is at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place from February 6 to February 24, 2012.
