Twenty + Change 

A travelling exhibition of projects by emerging Canadian architects

If you want to feel reassured that our cities are in good hands, go see Twenty + Change, a travelling exhibition of projects by emerging Canadian architects, urban and landscape designers. The inaugural show at Dalhousie's new Architecture and Planning faculty exhibition space kicked off Monday with a lecture by Ian Chodikoff, editor of Canadian Architect, but you don't need an expert to observe the trends: a multi-disciplinary dedication to high urban density and sustainability, social responsibility and creativity. Most of the projects are residential (young architects rarely receive large commercial commissions), including work by Halifax's Susan Fitzgerald, whose modern homes, Chodikoff says, could help change the urban fabric of the city. There's fun here too: Vancouver's Urban Republic turned the roof of an underutilized Gastown parking garage into a cool drive-in that shows Vancouver-related films. Admission: free for cyclists and pedestrians, but cars have to pay the garage's flat rate.

To March 15, Dalhousie School of Architecture and Planning,

5410 Spring Garden Road, free
