Founding Principal, David Sisam to speak as part of Ryerson University’s lecture series

On February 13, 2014 at 6:30pm at 325 Church Street, David will be speaking as part of the Ryerson University Lecture Series. The lecture is titled Place and Occasion.

The lecture begins with a very short introductory piece on the history and evolution of the practice. The body of the lecture is structured around the four themes: light and air; economy of means, generosity of ends; transcending expectations; and the space between.

Projects completed by the practice are used to illustrate the significance of the themes in the firm’s work and each theme is discussed in terms of historical precedents that have influenced the practice. The talk illustrates  the direct connection between the conceptual framework of the four themes and the built work while recognizing the importance of historical precedents in making that connection.
