To build collaboration and opportunities nation-wide, MLO created regional partnerships between provincial Architectural Associations, local Schools (Architecture and related fields), and a local venue with gallery space. This provided the opportunity for young designers to have their work exhibited and seen by a wide audience and will bring the discussion of architecture, (im)migration, and cultural memory to a broader environment. These partnerships is just the beginning - we hope it will trigger many future collaborations across Canada.
To coordinate the regional events and exhibitions, MLO appointed regional coordinators from BC to the Maritimes. For more information on each regional exhibition and the regional winners, as well as the partnerships in each region, and for the regional coordinators’ info, please visit the links to the LEFT.
