Culture Talks: Bruce Kuwabara | Thursday 1 November
Beginning in the fall of 2018, KWAG is hosting a series of discussions that explore how the integration of culture and urban renewal leads to culturally active spaces and the creation of great cities. Culture Talks: Creating Culturally Active Spaces focuses on topics such as cultural destinations, stunning buildings, place-making initiatives, public art, and multi-functional developments. Launching the series is Canadian architect Bruce Kuwabara.
Bruce Kuwabara of KPMB Architects is an influential practitioner and advocate of architectural excellence with expertise creating and communicating compelling design visions that catalyze stakeholders and the wider community. His unwavering belief in the power of architecture to implement social and civic change and maximize cultural, environmental and economic potential has earned him an Officer of the Order of Canada, the RAIC Gold Medal and the Ontario Association of Architects Lifetime Achievement Award. The recent winner of the Pier 8 Development in Hamilton, KPMB under Kuwabara has completed the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Remai Modern in Saskatoon, and under Mitchell Hall the Ottawa Art Gallery.
Please note that this event will take place off-site at The Walper Hotel. A reception for all guests will follow the talk at 7:30pm.
