Candidates for faculty positions are being interviewed by the selection committee over the next six weeks. As part of the selection process, candidates have agreed to present talks on architecture projects and architectural approaches.
The series will be open to the public and will be held weekly, each Monday at 5:30 p.m. at the Laurentian Architecture Project Office in downtown Sudbury.
“We are very pleased with the calibre of the applicants, and the range of experience they represent,” said Laurentian School of Architecture founding director Terrance Galvin.
“We have candidates from schools and from architecture firms in Canada and the U.S., and we have people coming in from Kuujjuaaq in northern Quebec, to Connecticut. This is a very good start, and an exciting step in the process of building our school.”
Visiting candidates for positions in a faculty of architecture typically deliver talks for the selection committee, according to Galvin.
“We’re just taking that tradition and extending it into the community, so that anyone interested in learning about architecture will have the opportunity to
hear and to enjoy these discussions,” he said.
Laurentian Architecture faculty are expected to begin their work early in January.
