The architects of Prince Edward Island, vital to the public interest but not known for their public relations abilities, are holding an “Architecture Week” starting Monday, October 3, 2011. True to their labyrinthian style, web publicity for the event is locked up inside a PDF inside Google Docs, the digital equivalent of printing something on parchment and hiding it under a bushel.
To help mitigate the damage caused by this obscure form of proto-publicity, here’s what they’re up to:
- Tuesday, October 4, 7:30 p.m. – “What is Sustainability? A Built Environment Perspective,” a lecture by Professor Steven Mannell, Director of Dalhousie University’s College of Sustainability. Confederation Centre Art Gallery.
- Wednesday, October 5, 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Public open houses at architectural firms (map of Charlottetown firms):
- BGHJ, 233 Queen Street, Charlottetown.
- North 46, 77 Grafton Street, Charlottetown.
- Chandler Architecture, 92 Queen Street, Charlottetown.
- Open Practice, 63 Pownal Street, Charlottetown.
- Coles Associates, 6 Prince Street, Charlottetown.
- Architecture 360, 45 Harrington Lane, Rice Point.
- Thursday, October 6, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. – Architectural Technology Program Open House, Room 114 at Holland College Centre for Applied Science and Engineering Technology.
- Thursday, October 6, 9:10 p.m. – Movie Night with My Architect at City Cinema. Regular admission.
I’ve created a public Google Calendar of all the events (iCal, HTML) so you can sync everything into your device of choice and be sure not to miss anything.
Presumably there will also be all sorts of underground after-hours architecture parties, but you’ll need to know someone who knows someone to get into those.
