TORONTO, ON — Architects, designers and engineers in Toronto will have a tremendous opportunity to hear from a global architecture and design pioneer firsthand. Visiting Canada on the occasion of receiving a 2018 Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), Odile Decq has accepted an invitation from TPL Lighting and Luceplan to deliver her talk “Architecture Thinking” on Wednesday May 30th at the offices of TPL Lighting, the leading commercial lighting agency in Toronto.
During the talk, Odile Decq will narrate her vision of architecture and the genesis of her projects, from urban complexes to individual design products, with a special focus on her creations in collaboration with Luceplan.
