Storytelling: The Latest Architecture and News

Visualizations as an Architectural Storytelling Tool

When we hear the term visualization, it’s likely that we picture a flashy render full of lights, people, dazzling finishes, and a sense of energy about the place that we are viewing. Aside from rendering a three-dimensional space, architects also need to develop their skills in the representation of intangible ideas that help drive the narrative behind their arguments. Instead of creating one-off concepts that are presented in a traditionally linear sequence, designers need to craft a story, structure their designs like a thesis, and consider how our presentations have the power to reveal the priorities of a project.

Let’s Talk About . . . Togetherness

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?

Speakers:

Avnish Nanda / Legal Advisor
Michelle Robinson / Host of Native Calgarian
Despina Stratigakos / Architectural Historian


When: September 19, 2019; 6:30 p.m.
Where: Calgary Central Library, Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall
Tickets: $12 advance, $6 students. $15 at doors.
