Assistant Professor Zach Colbert’s work is among the selected projects in the Ontario Association of Architects SHIFT 2019 Infrastructure/Architecture Challenge. Held every two years, SHIFT alternates with the OAA’s Design Excellence Awards and seeks to recognize work that demonstrates how architectural thinking can promote social equity, reduce isolation or embody social justice.  Prof. Colbert will publicly present the work at the upcoming OAA Annual Conference and the work will be published and exhibited alongside the conference programming. The project team included four Carleton BAS students: Connor Tamborro, Jasmine Sykes, Shelby Hagerman and James Nguyen. The project is a collaboration with the Condominium Homeowners Association of British Columbia and these ideas have been further extended through a research application in the Tri-Agency New Frontiers in Research program in collaboration with Dr. Jean Duquette, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Carleton University and Dr. Alexandra Mallett, Assistant Professor of Public Policy, Carleton University along with the Condominium Homeowners Association of British Columbia and BCHousing in Vancouver. This work is based at Carleton University and we are very grateful for this opportunity and for the OAA’s support of the initiative.
