Canada’s AGATHOM Co., Breathe Architects and Lapointe Architects were invited to create installations in response to building and design practices in the face of global economic realities. The exhibition Building for the Economy also features Home Economics, a textile-based installation by former Craft Studio artist-in-resident Thea Haines.

The objective of this architecture gallery is to present exhibitions which will educate, challenge and question the thoughts and the ideas informing contemporary architecture. It is a multi-functional space which is able to present exhibitions, act as a classroom and also as a meeting space for the discussion of issues relating to architecture.
