How can we design to meet today’s demand for parking in our city, while designing in enough flexibility to adapt to how we might get around in five- or ten-years’ time? We invite you to tour an innovative new building in East Village: a parkade that is designed to adapt to different uses over time.
Calgary: The Latest Architecture and News
d.talks Share Your Story workshop on June 24th, 6:30-8 p.m. is an opportunity for us to celebrate our sense of place as a means to rebuild community. In this workshop, we will extend our ongoing conversation on place and memory and turn our memories about place into mini stories.
Join us on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021 for the announcement of the winners of the CBDX: CITIES FOR ALL International Design Ideas Competition.
Join a panel to discuss the role of planning, architecture and landscape design in understanding the collective memory contained in the land. From the horizon to the Cartesian grid, what have we built and how does this influence a sense of belonging that one feels? What is the relationship between memory and the land?
On February 11, join d.talks for a conversation about storytelling and inclusion. At Let’s Talk About . . . Togetherness, our guest speakers will highlight the importance of stories in community building: Passed down over time, stories help shape people’s relationship to a place, to build community upon understanding and empathy . . . but, What happens when stories go missing, and some perspectives remain under the radar?
Let’s Talk About . . . Togetherness will take place on Tuesday, February 11, at the Calgary Central Library. Doors open at 6 p.m., program starts at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12
We connect with our built environment through stories, most of which are passed down over time. Join us on November 19 for an exploration on how stories go missing, or how some perspectives remain below the radar. Community is built upon understanding and empathy. What changes as we bring different stories together?

Join design talks (d.talks) in a discussion on the role of design in an often overlooked topic: waste.
In two generations, we’ve shifted from refillable glass bottles to single-use packaging. Serial replacement has become invisible.
Our city has reduced tonnes of waste entering the landfill with recycling and composting options. If we envisioned a future of zero-waste, what’s left to be done?
To explore the subject, d.talks is bringing together a panel to talk about waste from different perspectives. The panel includes Lourdes Juan, founder of the Leftovers Foundation; Sharon Howland, leader of program management for waste and recycling at the City
