ATMOSPHERE

 

Atmosphere is an annual symposium advancing interdisciplinary research and design. It is a forum to explore the ephemeral,

 

experiential and situational conditions of our shared world. Difficult to pin-down, capture and express, “atmosphere” is

 

enveloping yet recessive. It is what we as designers and interpreters of the built and natural environment strive to understand,

 

generate and meaningfully engage.

 

 

Since 2009 the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba has hosted an annual Atmosphere Symposium. This event

 

brings together researchers, designers and distinguished keynote speakers from around the world. It also gathers students and

 

professors from the five allied disciplines within our Faculty (Architecture, City Planning, Environmental Design, Interior Design

 

and Landscape Architecture); colleagues from other units across the University (including Engineering and Arts); and

 

representatives from Winnipeg’s local arts communities and professional associations. The three-day symposium includes

 

invited lecturers, peer-reviewed presentations, exhibitions, student installations, receptions, and numerous casual opportunities

 

for serious exchange.

 

 

Each year the Atmosphere Symposium poses a specific yet open-ended theme to draw researchers into a topically oriented

 

discourse. The theme for Atmosphere 10 is Fabrications.
