SfMB's MONTHLY PLAYLIST

February 28, 2022

February is Black History Month. This month and every month, we celebrate and honour Black communities, including people, experiences, histories, and achievements. We’ve compiled a varied sample, including a look at the origin story of Black History Month, recent conversations and panel discussions with Canadian Black designers and urbanists, as well as moving documentaries on the lives of legendary black creatives like Paul Williams and Maya Angelou.

SfMB's JANUARY 2022 PLAYLIST

November 30, 2021

In this liminal time of endless winter and covid, we turn our attention to the void. Besides, Bruno Zevi tells us the void is the very essence of architecture, not the "sum of the width, length, and height". Negative space in painting, pauses in a piece of music - absence is rich with potential.
