Public Lecture - Proposed Design Research Centre

  • Quidi Vidi Village Plantation 10 Maple View Place St. John's, Newfoundland Canada (map)

Join us as Grant Genova details the plans for a locally based Design Research Centre. This is one of the 10 finalists for Albedo Grant hosted by the Overcast. Come out and support this wonderful idea!

From the Overcast:

“There are a few things that define our province and capital city, and one of them is poor forward-thinking when it comes to long-term planning, and urban design. This group is proposing the creation of a Design Resource Centre: a publicly accessible “storefront” where people from all walks of life can be exposed to the myriad concepts and possibilities that the term design presents. It will be space where courses in architecture, interior design, heritage preservation, urban planning, and design thinking are taught by experienced individuals, possibly sometimes in partnership with MUN and colleges. The Design Resource Centre is seen as a seed that will one day be a prized local institution. The notable trio behind this idea is City Councillor Dave Lane, visionary Architect Grant Genova, and Chair of Happy City St. John’s, Rob Nolan.“
