The Simcoe Street Speaker Series Presents: JIM CAMPBELL- RESPONSIVE VS. PRESCRIPTIVE ARCHITECTURE on Tuesday March 29 at 7pm at the Simcoe Street Theatre, 65 Simcoe Street, Collingwood.
JIM CAMPBELL of Rockside Campbell Design Inc. will be this month's speaker with the topic - RESPONSIVE VS. PRESCRIPTIVE ARCHITECTURE - Considering our Historic Conservation District Guidelines. An exploration of the relationship of new construction to heritage buildings and finding new uses for OCW (old crappy wood).
Twenty years ago Jim was awarded an International Scholarship from the Government of Finland, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Medal, and several other notable awards for his Master of Architecture degree which delved into the heritage of the Blue Mountain area's vernacular architecture and people.
Since that time, in partnership with Suzanne Wesetvik, he has focused efforts on raising four kids (two human, two goat) and designing contextually responsive buildings which often incorporate restored, re-assembled or repurposed heritage buildings, including vintage timber-frame barn structures.
Included in the talk will be a short film by Tom Strand of Mountain Goat Films documenting some of Rockside Campbell's recent work.
