What changes as we bring different stories together?

Calgary’s upcoming Attabotics Headquarters, designed by the Modern Office of Design + Architecture, physicalizes complex circulatory systems into a structure that is simultaneously aesthetically pleasing and programmatically successful. The client, a robotics manufacturer, was initially inspired by the spatial organization of ant colonies in their design for their emblematic robotic storage and retrieval system. This attribute consequently embeds itself in the new design for their headquarters, which navigates height restrictions, views, programming, and sustainability within this already intricate system of organization.  

Let's Talk About . . . Waste

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
