TSA presents panel discussion on short films made by architects and students

In the spirit of Toronto’s week and a half of film festivities, the TSA is shining the limelight on shorts made by members of the architecture and design community as they responded to the prompt: What stories does our built environment tell? How can film help us understand the places we inhabit?

For this month’s playlist, the organization has arranged virtual panel discussions with filmmakers that address the opportunities, challenges, and potential of film to tell architectural narratives.

On September 29 the TSA is presenting a special panel discussion with students, recent grads, and faculty, moderated by Peter Sobchak, editor at Building Magazine and Canadian Interiors. A short Q&A will also follow the discussion.

The panellist includes Vineetha Sivathasan, a graduate of the Masters of Architecture program from the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. She currently works at Kohn Partnership Architects, where she is continuing her path to become a fully licensed Architect in Ontario.

David Correa’s research looks at biological structures and processes as a source of insight for the development of new fabrication processes and advanced materials. The research aims at the critical use of technology to develop innovative and high-performance design solutions.

Peter Kwak/Wayne Yan: KandY Films is comprised of University of Waterloo Architecture Graduate students Peter Kwak and Wayne Yan, who met during their undergraduate studies at the same institution.

Michael Yoshimura is a CG Artist based in Toronto. Michael received his Bachelor & Master of Architecture from the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism.

Alistair Grierson is an intern architect currently working and living in Toronto. He studied at Dalhousie University in Halifax and holds a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Toronto.

Panel discussions will be held via zoom, as well as live-streamed on Facebook live.
