An interdisciplinary charrette at the IwB, George Brown College.
This annual event brings together about 200 students and faculty from schools in Canada and around the world. Teams made up of students, faculty and external advisors will conduct research and propose solutions for responsive building typologies. The teams will present their projects to a panel of faculty, industry and government representatives. Results will be featured in a final publication at the IwB.

The charrette challenge will be to create design solutions for responsive
buildings that will be durable, affordable, flexible, efficient, intelligent and sustainable.
The Responsive Buildings Charrette will look at four different typological conditions in Toronto: Neighbourhoods, Transit Nodes, Preservation Districts, and Industrial District. The goal is to explore how these typologies can be re-imagined to create new mixed use environments that are replicate across the region. The four typologies will be looked at to imagine their evolutionary potential. Specifically, teams will considering how they address the needs of urban residents in 2015 and 20 years later in 2035
