The Buildings All Around Us
One Day @ McGill presents seminars that allow you first-hand access to a McGill experience. Held on the McGill University campus, these affordable small-group sessions are unique educational opportunities in which you are able to access in-depth knowledge produced by our academic community.
Description: An exercise in how to understand the buildings that Montrealers walk past every day, this session will go beyond looking to reading and decoding—when and why was that building designed and built that way? Who built it? In the first part of the session, participants will learn how to observe a building in the downtown area using images and a site visit. The second part of the session will focus on how to find out more about that building and its Montreal neighbourhood.
