Architects embrace and transform space. Trained to see edges, proportions and relationships, they hold a unique architectural perspective which allows them to observe a space, imagine a design, and create something new. With the ability to see space, comes the ability to see Spaces Between. Often overlooked, architects capture these interstices and turn them into inspiration and places of beauty.
The 2018 AIBC Annual Conference will explore the many interpretations of Spaces Between – where ideas that are seemingly opposed connect, where negative space encourages thoughtful design, and where innovation, technology and materiality meet. Be it conceptual, physical or technical, we invite you to bring your own perspective to this examination of Spaces Between and find where you can be both challenged and inspired.
The largest convergence of its kind in British Columbia, which runs over three days, the conference offers stimulating plenary sessions, intimate seminars, panel discussions and evening gatherings, all hosted at British Columbia’s flagship convention centre—Vancouver Convention Centre West.
AIBC's 99th Annual Meeting will also take place during the conference.
