MAKE / Coffee + Stuff, "003_READ"

January 14-28, 2013

The exhibition 003_READ celebrates 21 years of publishing of the Warehouse Journal at the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Architecture. Founded in 1991, it set forth with the mandate for being a medium in which to foster and disseminate discourse and critique. The entire collection, Volumes 1 to 21, will be on display to reflect the evolutionary changes to the academic structure of the Faculty of Architecture, and reveal the changing world of publishing through its production and aesthetic value.

MAKE is a new event + retail venue at 751 Corydon Avenue.

Core Sunlighting Illumination in Buildings

Registration Deadline is January 15, 2013.

Architecture Canada | RAIC is pleased to offer a second session of its interactive online course, developed by the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), that examines the application of core sunlighting approaches and technologies in commercial buildings as sustainable strategies to reduce costs, offset greenhouse gas, and provide a substantially improved indoor environment in workplaces.

Students will be provided a login and password by BCIT prior to course start. Offered from January 19 to 28, 2013, each participant will be allowed unlimited log-in over a one week period to complete the course content. During the course duration, an instructor/facilitator will be available asynchronously to answer questions and moderate discussions. Using tools such as video, audio and voiced-over PowerPoint, students will "visit" demonstration sites and hear from core sunlighting experts.

To Register:


February 7-9, 2013

The University of Manitoba's Faculty of Architecture in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada hosts an annual symposium - ATMOSPHERE (ATMOS). Each year the ATMOSPHERE symposia explore issues that are intangible and overlooked in design, planning and architecture, those difficult to pin down, document, or record with conventional instruments and methodologies. ATMOS 5 will focus on Ecology + Design.


The 2012 Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards

The deadline is 12:00 noon, Friday, February 1, 2013.

The Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development established the Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards to recognize and honour people, projects and ideas that successfully turn the principles and guidelines of sustainable development into lasting achievements. Sustainable development is an approach to daily decision-making that integrates probable consequences to our environment, our economy and the health and well-being of all Manitobans. It's a way of making decisions that balances the needs of today without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
