University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA)

Reception Monday Feb 27, 6.30PM
Curated by Matthew Soules
SALA Works presents a diverse range of projects by faculty at UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA).
As a dynamic centre of leading design research and pedagogy, SALA and its faculty stretch the theoretical, technical and practice-based boundaries of architecture and landscape architecture. SALA Works reveals the breadth and scope of faculty work in tackling critical 21st Century design topics. The more than twenty projects presented collectively incorporate various modes of drawings, computer generated visualization, models and text. The work includes representations of built projects, speculative design propositions, emergent technologies, and socio-spatial analysis. Spanning ideas for housing, public space transformations, community enhancement, written works on historical and contemporary space, explorations of digital technology and its role in the built-environment, the environmental performance of buildings and materials, and more, SALA Works offers a provocative view into the current state of design thinking and practice at UBC.
