“Seeing the spaces we help create being actively engaged with creative people – it’s why we do what we do”. - Principal Jennifer Mallard
Jennifer will speak about two of Diamond Schmitt’s projects that hold a special place in her heart: The National Arts Centre in Ottawa and Daniels Spectrum in Toronto. Selected for their astounding impact on their communities, these two projects represent both ends of the spectrum—one a large-scale national institution and the other, a new home to small grassroots arts organizations. Through these examples, Jennifer will illustrate the opportunities and responsibilities we face in public architecture, citing collaboration and civic engagement to be the critical ingredient in their success for posterity.
The current roster of sessions includes Three Ceilings: Mega Structures after 20 Years, Implicit Bias that Women+ Experience in Theatre Engineering, Architecture and Construction, Second Spaces: Second to None and New Music in Old Buildings.
