what happened? Discussion on Brutalist architecture heritage and adaptive re- use for a building in Calgary.
Presentation and panel discussion with David Down/City of Calgary, Modern Office Design +Architecture, Spectacle Bureau for Architecture and Urbanism, Nyhoff Architecture
Possibilities for a Brutalist Building.
If architecture was like hockey, what buildings would be on our city’s trading cards? ICONOMY brings focus to iconic buildings in Calgary. First up is the Education Centre Building, a 44-year-old Brutalist structure. This discussion promises to blend our city’s history with a perspective on all things Brutal, and some clear-headed thinking about the role of adaptive-reuse.
What makes a building an ICON and how important is it to our city’s ECONOMY?
