OUR NEW AGE: Designing for an ageing population

WEDNESDAY, February 19 to WEDNESDAY, March 4, 2020 during our regular hours, the OUR NEW AGE exhibition is in our main lobby. Created by Patricia Johnsson, based on her studies and research with the support of the Order of Architects of Quebec, the cardboard and wood model emphasizes imagination, futurism and fun in its presentation of design strategies for an ageing population, a subject typically sobered by its practical and serious concerns. Patricia was inspired by the artist Bodys Isek Kingelez, “who uses collage and whimsy in his work to build worlds as they are and as they could be.”
