Tiffin Talks | Architecture as an expression of Empathy or Influence

July 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Tiffin Talks is a five-part ideas series featuring a diverse group of thought leaders, artists, innovators, and changemakers, gathering to share ideas and a meal together.

Located at PAUSE, Indian Summer Festival’s outdoor pavilion gazing out onto the mountains and the Burrard inlet, these longtable lunches delivered hot onsite in Indian-style tiffins, will return you to your day both nourished and fed.

In the spirit of turning strangers into friends, this is an opportunity to register for lunch for one. Listen to brilliant presenters, then dine and converse about new ideas surrounded by art, land, and ocean.

Each lunch is limited to 20 people. Book your tickets early!

Tiffin Talks are by donation, with a suggested $10 for lunch. Fee will be waived upon request, no one turned away for lack of funds. (Pending availability, pre-registration is still required).

All Tiffin Talk meals are vegetarian. When registering, please proceed to checkout where you will be prompted to select a vegan or gluten free option as desired.

Thursday July 12th

Tiffin Talks: Architecture as an expression of Empathy or Affluence?

A panel of noted architects including Luugigyoo Patrick Stewart, Marianne Amodio

BV Doshi, the Indian architect and winner of 2018’s prestigious Pritzker Prize, famously argues that architecture should be informed not by an aesthetics of affluence but by an aesthetic of empathy. Four presenters speak to this provocation from their positions of design, advocacy, intervention, and public service.
