April Building Conversations – April 22, 2021
Join us for a special Earth Day presentation: Building a Future!
Featuring Arne Suraga, Architect, Diamond Schmitt Architects, who will be chatting with Chris about the future of building design, its impact on society as a whole and how to responsibly use and protect the natural environment through sustainable building practices.
Being fascinated by architecture and design from an early age, Arne pursued this passion through a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Toronto. After joining Diamond Schmitt Architects in 2013 he has been engaged on numerous projects of truly varied scales: From temporary pavilions sheltering dozens through to multi-tower developments housing thousands, his attention to detail and design are central to them all. Developing designs hand-in-hand with sustainable objectives is a key element of his design ethos, and this belief in implementing real-world solutions drew him to become involved in the Passive House community.
