Architecture for Humanity hosts international exhibition

Our friends at Architecture for Humanity are hosting an international design exhibition at the InterUrban gallery (on Hastings).  One of our Urban Design Coordinators, Kari Dow, has been involved with the initiative.  Here’s the details:

The launch party will be held at the InterUrban Gallery (1 East Hastings) on Thursday, April 1st from 6:30pm-1:00am. DJs, a cash bar (serving beer, wine and a signature cocktail), and refreshments will be provided. This is a great opportunity for people in the design community to get together, let loose and share ideas.

The exhibition showcases 52 finalists from the 2009 Open Architecture Challenge. The Challenge invited the international architecture, design and engineering community to collaborate directly with students and teachers to rethink the classroom of the future. More than 1,200 designers from 65 countries registered for the competition. The winner was awarded $5,000 and the selected partner school received $50,000 to realize their design.

The exhibition also features submissions from the AFHV team and local students in collaboration with Arts Umbrella.

To see more details on the exhibition and get a sneak peak at some of the finalists you can go here.  Beats provided by DJ Pat Lok (Bonafide @ Shine) and a little mix tape here.  Facebook event page.
