Leading Architects and Designers on Principles to Design By

On March 20, the AZURE Talks lecture series returns with the panel discussion “Principles to Design By.” Taking place at George Brown’s Waterfront Campus in Toronto, the talk will feature five past and present AZ Awards jurors delving deep into the core ideas and ambitions that drive their cutting-edge work. The evening event is bound to ignite a meaningful conversation about how architects and designers view their roles and responsibilities – both to clients and the broader society.

Experts in the fields of landscape architecture, interior design, architecture, and furniture and lighting design, the AZURE Talks panelists are:


As the founding principal at Studio Munge, Toronto interior designer Alessandro Munge has been creating award-winning hospitality, restaurant and residential interiors for over 20 years. Munge’s passion and diverse perspective is expressed in every project, most recently with The William Vale Hotel in Brooklyn, New York. The firm won first place in the 2016 IIDA Design Competition for Lago restaurant in Las Vegas and its design of Vancouver’s Hawksworth was a finalist in the 2014 James Beard Foundation Awards.

Tickets for AZURE Talks are available here for $20. This lecture qualifies for one ConEd structured learning hour (a certificate will be provided upon request, post-event, by email).
