On the Road

The Roadshow: Architectural Landscapes of Canada has wrapped up its cross country tour.

Intended as a public discourse on the state of contemporary Canadian architecture, the tour took nine designers by bus from Vancouver to Halifax, stopping at various architecture schools for presentations and discussions. The Roadshow website is now streaming video interviews with each designer and includes an essay on the conceptual framework of the event.

Included on the trip was Vancouver's David Battersby of Battersby Howat, who have designed a string of highly refined West Coast Modern residences. Battersby discusses a residence the firm designed on Gambier Island as well as their design process and how it's affected by the landscape, clients and working relationships within the office.
