Inter / Faces

Young Public, 29 November 2015, 2:30pm - 4:30pm

How can architecture respond to a specific urban context? How can the various typologies and cultural needs of diverse inhabitants influence design? How to capture the character of a city through its buildings? Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza’s social housing projects Bonjour Tristesse and Punt en Komma, designed for immigrant communities in Berlin and The Hague respectively, are the point of departure for a workshop in which families explore how Montreal’s social diversity could influence the design of buildings.

During this interactive workshop, participants will explore together the character of neighbourhoods and social housing projects in Montreal. Gather and compare your own housing needs, draw, build and present a facade of your choice, and discuss your design.

For children ages 5 to 12, accompanied by an adult. Free, but spaces are limited. Please reserve ahead: 514 939 7026.
