Designers from Across Canada Learn about Human Architecture at IIDEX
December 2015 - Audax's unique design methodology, Human Architecture was part of a continuing education seminar at IIDEX 2015, Canada's National Design and Architecture Exhibition and Conference. Led by Audax's principal, Gianpiero Pugliese, the seminar demonstrated how Human Architecture can be used to marry modern and traditional design elements in a way that appeals to a broad base of clients. A highlight of the presentation was a case study researched and created by Audax that takes an image of a medieval town in Italy and renders all of its buildings in a modern aesthetic. The illustration demonstrates how modern buildings can be designed with the same scale and intimate qualities of traditional buildings and urban landscapes. This case study was originally created for an OAA Nuit Blanche exhibit that presented ideas and concepts about the future of architecture and city building. During the IIDEX presentation Gianpiero also referenced Audax's award-winning Shops of Summerhill, which embodies many of the main principles of Human Architecture.
