This Week In Gastown

Todd Saunders
@Inform Interiors

Tuesday January 30th
5pm

Architect Todd Saunders will be coming to speak at Inform’s 50 Water Street showroom from 5 to 7pm.

Well known for his exemplary work on the Fogo Island Inn, Todd Saunders’ firm is led by a strong contemporary design sensibility. The studio believes that architecture must play an important role in creating place through the use of form, materials and texture to help evoke and shape memory and human interaction. The office operates within existing natural, as well as, manmade contexts. Examples range from an award nominated dramatic viewpoint structure set amidst a rich protected landscape to several new-build houses within more traditional suburban settings.

 

City Builder: The Architecture of James KM Cheng Book Launch
@Inform Interiors

Thursday February 1st
5pm

Join in welcoming Architect James Cheng and author Trevor Boddy to Informs 50 Water Street showroom on February 1st from 5 to 7pm to celebrate the launch of their new book City Builder: The Architecture of James KM Cheng. To attend, please fill out this RSVP form.

This stunning book is the first major documentation of the work of one of the world’s leading shapers of emerging cities, James K.M. Cheng. Devising high-density residential complexes, Cheng combines expertise in urban and garden design, commercial real estate development, and carefully proportioned architecture into a new and synthetic role, that of “City-Builder.” The majority of the photographs in the book were taken by Cheng, creating a rare architecture book with visuals framed by the architect himself.
