ARCHITECTURE AND TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE:
IMPOSSIBLE DREAM OR CREATIVE OPPORTUNITY?
Utilitarian, accessible, safe, sustainable and economic - the list of demands on transport infrastructure is long. Should we be restricted by it, or can we also be inventive in the design of new projects? Can they incorporate creative architecture, without compromising effectiveness?
With Alain Dufour, Executive Director, Mission Design and Gérard Beaudet, Professor, Institut d'Urbanisme, Université de Montréal.
Wednesday, May 14, 6 p.m.
