North York Central Library

As we walk about our cities and observe the surrounding buildings, most people are unaware of what goes into the construction of architecture. How do we start with the initial sketch on paper, and arrive at the finished piece?

This talk reveals some of the amazing processes that precede the final product: material selection, decisions concerning steel, concrete and timber; and choices impacting workers who actually perform the difficult task of building. Included are images of the construction of many important, complex buildings in Toronto and around the world.

Speaker: Terri Meyer Boake, Professor, School of Architecture, University of Waterloo.
