Fluid Infrastructures // c-url Spring Symposium 2017

March 3-4, 2017
Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism

Ottawa is a river city, and Carleton is a campus shaped by the Rideau River and by the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site.

To mark the founding of the Carleton Urban Research Lab (c.url), the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism will host a two-day water symposium and workshop. The Fluid Infrastructure symposium, which coincides with Carleton University’s 75th anniversary, will bring together designers, historians, researchers, students, and local experts willing to reimagine the relationship of the university and the city to their defining hydraulic systems.
