Emerging Curator 2015 - Canadian Centre for Architecture


I have been selected as the 2015-2016 Emerging Curator at the Canadian Centre for Architecture witht he project: “Off:Re:On-Shore." The project will develop a communication strategy about on-shoring—that is, architecture, urbanism, landscape, and infrastructure as tangible and enduring ways to empower and improve the living standards of workers and communities in emerging markets.
Increasing automation, populist protectionist measures, and South-to-South competition are challenging a once thought safe path to development, and therefore putting more pressure on the conditions of workers offshore. This project seeks to look at the built environment of production offshore and to discuss the possibilities and limitations for transformative change of a renewed engagement of business with society through architecture and spatial practices.
The Emerging Curator Program offers the opportunity to propose and curate a project at the CCA related to contemporary debates in architecture, urban issues, landscape design, and cultural and social dynamics. The project is to be developed during a residency of three months at the CCA.
