Explore the ways in which architecture and urban design affect our daily lives. Throughout the week, we celebrate the role of architecture in an engaging way that is fun and engaging.
The theme, this year ” Under Water: weathering the new normal” will raise questions about the way we live, where and how we build housing.
Architecture has always had a complex affair with nature. We’re inspired by nature and celebrate it. We try to control nature and to shield ourselves from it. Done recklessly, architecture disrupts the delicate natural balance. Done with care, architecture can help us both coexist with and enjoy nature.
This year OAW invites the pubic to explore environmental challenges. Let’s look at tradition, learn from history, admire innovation, and debate social change and responsibility. Together we’ll gauge Ottawa’s resiliency to this extreme weather, discuss preventative and reparative measures- and of course, determine what role architecture plays in all of this.
