2016 Tongji International Construction Festival

Tue, 2016-06-14 15:55

The School of Architecture team took second prize at the recently completed 2016 Tongji International Construction Festival in Shanghai. The students' project - "Sphere - Wave" - was based on the use of a single, repeated module and required no additional fasteners beyond a simple friction connection. This allowed for rapid assembly without additional tools in a variety of situations. The modular concept also permitted a variety of shapes for the final project.

Tue, 2016-06-14 14:26

Going through the foyer to the ballroom, we bumped into regulars of this yearly Soirée: radio host Mitsou and her husband Iohann Martin. TV host and producer Eric Salvail, radio and TV host Isabelle Racicot with husband music executive Donald Robins. Also there, TV host and producer Herby Moreau. It wasn’t long before I got to catch up with Montreal notables Lynn and Andy Nulman, McGill professor Karl Moore, restaurateur Carlos Ferreira (Euro-chic in green pants). And, wanting to get some Just For Laughs exclusives, I cozied up to its COO, Bruce Hills: no dice.
