Description

The School of Architectural Technology participated in a day-long design charrette in winter 2018, kicking off the day with guest speaker and Indigenous artist Jeff Thomas. This, our third All-School design event, focused on providing a better understanding of the Truth and Reconciliation process through creative thinking and hands-on production. Teams of students worked together to make a sculptural piece that represented one half of a hearth, the heat source used in the long house: the traditional housing type found on this land prior to colonization. Today’s presentation will focus on our detailed charrette program, our method of engagement, student outcomes, and our plans to continue to use architecture in our ongoing effort towards reconciliation.
