    ARCHITECT@WORK Canada 2018 - free CEUs featuring innovative speakers

    Event Date: Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12, 2018

    Following its successful Canadian launch last May, ARCHITECT@WORK Canada is returning to Toronto's Enercare Centre. For the second year in a row, IDC has been selected as a preferred education partner for this international show series. 

    Registration for entry to the show floor is free. Please use access code 22000, unique to IDC members, to register online for free access to IDC seminars. 

    The Toronto show, like the other 24 worldwide locations where ARCHITECT@WORK operates, features spotlights with dramatic black textiles and complimentary catering for all visitors throughout the event, encouraging networking and downtime as well as deal-making. The global, two-day event is aimed at architects, interior designers and specifiers and is free to registered visitors.

    This leading edge design event will once again showcase the latest innovative products, materials, applications and services which have passed stringent judging by a panel of leading Canadian architects and interior designers. Every product and service profiled over two information-packed days will therefore be less than two years old.

    IDC has again partnered with ARCHITECT@WORK Canada to deliver a select number of educational opportunities, mirroring the themes of innovation and creativity, as well as tools and techniques to approach some of the key challenges and opportunities facing the Canadian design industry.


    SEMINAR SCHEDULE - APRIL 11

    DESIGNING FOR CANADA'S MEDICAL MARIJUANA INDUSTRY - BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY OR COMMERCIAL KRYPTONITE? 
    1 - 2 p.m.| 1 IDCEC hour

    As marijuana legislation changes across North America, we're experiencing a 'wild west' atmosphere when it comes to how this polarizing topic gets communicated, packaged and designed. Brand new to many - yet loaded with misconceptions and biases - the retailing of medical and recreational marijuana lacks real insight into the people it exists to serve.

    This presentation will introduce new approaches to understanding how to design for people in such uncertain environments. Attendees will see inside the process used to understand the unconscious drivers of decisions and behaviours in this rapidly emerging industry.

    PRESENTER: TYLER GILCHRIST, FIGURE 3 

    Tyler Gilchrist is Vice President of Design Research & Strategy at figure3, the Toronto-based design consultancy that has developed a reputation for designing exceptional workplaces, retail and residential spaces, inspired by a purpose of changing how people think, feel, decide and behave. With the legalization of medical marijuana soon becoming a reality in Canada, the team at figure3 has had the rare opportunity to design a medical marijuana dispensary that is now fully operational in Florida. 

    Tyler has been studying applied design research methods for close to two decades while working with a diverse group of architecture, design and research firms. His job at figure3 is to leverage the new science of how we experience the built environment – through the application of ‘generative design research’ – in order to help designers and their clients better understand the people we design for. His expertise has been applied to a diverse roster of clients, including the nascent cannabis industry, and businesses of all sizes are eager to understand how to leverage his insights to create designed environments that really connect with end users.


    SEMINAR SCHEDULE - APRIL 12

    GREEN BUILDING IN 2018: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW AND WHAT'S NEXT
    1 - 2 p.m.| 1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    Perhaps you’re already an aficionado of all things sustainability-driven or it may be that a new or prospective project is encouraging you to learn more. Yet you may be unaware of some of the practical issues, gaining increasing prominence, which will impact professionals working in urban planning, architecture and design, facilities management and property development, to name but a few.

    This seminar will outline five of the most influential ‘Green Building’ trends influencing working life in 2018 and beyond – Zero Carbon, The Retrofit Economy, Big Data, Program Diversity and Lifecycle.

    PRESENTER: JEFF RANSON, CANADA GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL (CaGBC) 

    Leading the session will be Jeff Ranson, GTA Regional Director for the CaGBC (Canada Green Building Council), who has consulted nationally and internationally, with a focus on capacity building and strategic planning for sustainable development, climate change mitigation, and resilience outcomes.

    He is the former founding Executive Director of the Toronto 2030 District, and was previously Manager of Education for Sustainable Buildings Canada as well as lead facilitator for Enbridge’s Savings By Design energy conservation program. Jeff is an Honors graduate of Western University’s Richard Ivey School of Business and of OCADU’s Masters of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation, where he received the President’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies.
