Building designers to discuss visions and decisions|
| || ||
Decisions about a building’s exterior cladding are critical to fulfilling the overall design vision. At the same time, they are essential for meeting design objectives such as environmental performance.
Presentations and a panel discussion will explore ways designers work with particularly unique building envelopes. Organized by the City of Toronto Building Division, the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto, “In the Skin of a Building” takes place Tuesday, May 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Royal Ontario Museum Theatre, 100 Queen’s Park Cres.
Presenters and panelists include members of design teams for three significant additions to Toronto’s cultural and institutional landscape:
- The ROM Crystal - Paul Gogan, Bregman & Hamann Architects, in joint venture with Studio Libeskind
- The Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research (CCBR) - Stefan Behnisch, Behnisch Behnisch and Partners in joint venture with Architects Alliance
- The Leslie L. Dan Faculty of Pharmacy - Stephen Best, Foster and Partners and Cannon Design.
Entrance to this free public event is through the ROM’s south door near the Museum subway station.
