Considering the Quake | Seismic Design on the Edge opens 12 September 2012 in Toronto

An intriguing new exhibit is to go on display at the Design Exchange in Downtown Toronto this autumn, focusing on the interdependent relationship between architects and engineers in the creation of earthquake-resistant buildings. Considering the Quake | Seismic Design on the Edge will launch on 12 September until November 2012, showcasing such complex projects as OMA’s Taipei Performing Arts Center, Libeskind’s Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, and Arup’s Olympic Water Cube in Beijing.

Curated by Dr. Effie Bouras, postdoctoral fellow and Professor Ghyslaine McClure, P.Eng of the McGill University Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics, the exhibition is explained thus: “Many speak of architecture as both a science and art, but few ever truly witness the ‘science’ part of architecture. Behind the building’s skin lies much of its initial premise, developed between the union of architect and engineer; an intersecting communication, creating unparalleled synchronicity when each profession just plainly gets it right.”
