Art x Architects “What’s Next?”
December 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As we approach a post-Blade Runner world, the Metro Vancouver Chapter of Architecture Canada is asking what’s next for architecture? We know it will have to contend with growing environmental needs, along with mass global urbanization and its affects, all the while being captured by selfies and disseminated through the internet.
In the 1960’s, design think-tanks like Archigram imagined what was next for architecture, conceiving of a future world of plug-in buildings and walking cities. Similarly now in 2016, the Chapter is calling on architect/artists to envision and depict what is in store for us in the next 50-100 years, once again to be realized on a 10″ x 10″ wooden panel.
The Metro Vancouver Chapter of the RAIC is proud to launch their second Art by Architects Auction, a group exhibition and fundraising event that celebrates the artistic talent of emerging and established architects to contribute to a meaningful cause.
Artists are encouraged to participate in this worthwhile event.
Save the date! The AxA opening reception and silent auction will be held on December 8, 2016. The AIBC has generously offered to host the event in conjunction with their Holiday Open House. All artwork will remain on display until January 2017.
