Imaging the City

04.Dec.2017 // “Imaging the City”
6:30pm // National Gallery of Canada

Evolving digital tools and technologies are transforming the ways we analyze, understand, design, and represent the urban realm. How do contemporary methods of visualization influence our relationship with the natural and built environments? And how might new ways of imaging the city invite broader participation in the conversations that will shape the future? Join us as we explore new dimensions of research and visualization in the fields of urbanism, landscape, and design. Presentations by invited speakers will be followed by a discussion panel, moderated by Stanley Leinwand of the NCC Urbanism Lab and Catherine Bonier of Carleton Urban Research Lab (c-url).

A Forum conversation presented in partnership with the NCC Urbanism Lab.
Monday’s Forum event will centre on a panel of 3 speakers who will explain their approaches to digital design research and visualization:
Emma Greer, a Canadian architect and multidisciplinary professional whose work bridges technology, design, and urban issues. She is Chief of Staff at Carlo Ratti Associati, Torino, Italy.
Fadi Masoud, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Toronto. His current research and design work focuses on establishing relationships between dynamic large-scale environmental systems, design, and the instrumentality of planning frameworks, policies and codes.
Stephen Fai, director of the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) and an associate professor at Carleton University. His research integrates digitization, building information modelling, simulation, digitally assisted storytelling and, digitally assisted fabrication.
Free and open to the public.
