Our speaker at the June 2012 CreativeMornings/Ottawa was Associate Professor Manuel A. Báez. (manuelbaez.pbworks.com/w/page/28541605/Manuel%20A%20B%C3%A1ez). His presentation that morning was entitled " Metaphoric Inter-Weavings: Arts & Technology" and was quite well received.
He has been teaching at the Carleton University Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism (.carleton.ca/architecture/) since January of 2001. Previously, he taught in the United States at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science (cooper.edu/) and Art in New York City and Rhode Island School Design (risd.edu/) in Providence, RI. His work as an architect, artist and researcher draws inspiration from the generative potential of the forms, structures and integrative systems generated by elemental processes that exist throughout the natural environment.
The event was generously hosted by then HUB Ottawa (hubottawa.org), located at 71 Bank Street, Ottawa.
