CAFE Summary Report
Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA)
The Canadian Architecture Forums on Education were part of a year-long outreach project to discuss and debate the role of architectural education and research in shaping Canada’s future. Modes of exchange included five in-person forums at five schools of architecture between October 2019 and March 2020, and related online consultations and knowledge mobilization. The knowledge and ideas mobilized through these forums aimed to inform the development of an inaugural architecture policy for Canada. The forums enabled students, educators, and academic researchers to play meaningful roles in shaping a policy framework, its priorities, ambition, and depth of vision. The CAFÉ Summary Report provides an overview of the forums, their structure and purpose, presentation summaries, analysis of feedback from the consultations and online survey, a record of manifesto submissions and winners, as well as related resources and credits.
