Projects Review 2019 features graduate and undergraduate projects from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. The exhibition showcases the creativity, craft and commitment to architectural excellence that are internationally recognized qualities of the School. Undergraduate projects are immersed in a full range of contemporary issues that span from the nuances of building design to the sustainability of urban precincts. Graduate projects are distinguished by self-directed thesis work that examines the ever changing cultural, digital, poetic and political conditions confronting architectural practice in the 21st century.
Our theme this year, 'Sources' questions the traditional project exhibition format. Inspired by the recent development of 'open' and 'crowd' digital communication methods that turn viewers into collaborators, this year we look for ways in which gallery visitors can engage more deeply with student work.
