Global Practice Sessions Banner

The Global Practice Sessions - Speakers Series is part of the MArch Professional Practice program at Waterloo Architecture, bringing together speakers from the local to the global, talking about their diverse and varied experiences of practice in architecture and related design fields. Presenters discuss what motivates them and the opportunities a design career offers, in making meaningful contributions to their communities and the larger world around them.

Chosen for the diversity of interdisciplinary work they do, ranging from conventional architectural practice, to landscape, interior and graphic design, product design, visual arts, critical writing, project development and social justice advocacy, the work of these practices demonstrates the synergies and opportunities within these overlapping disciplines, to create meaningful artefacts and enriching environments for their users.
