(Re)Presentations of Space

What is space? The answer may seem obvious, but almost every discipline has developed very different representations of space. What are these representations, and why are they useful? In this panel, we will discuss a number of examples on different spatial scales: physics, urban planning, and architecture. *Warning* Attendance at this panel discussion may change how space and time are perceived

    Dan Carney is a postdoc in physics at UBC. He got his PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in 2014 and undergrad physics and math degrees at the University of Cincinnati. His research is theoretical and focuses on the way in which quantum systems gravitate, especially in the early universe. He never learned long division.

    Victor Ngo is a MA student in planning, and holds a BA in Geography from UBC. Victor’s research focuses on urban sustainability planning and design, drawing on interdisciplinary and participatory methods to transition cities and communities to become more socially and environmentally sustainable. He currently works at research labs in UBC's School of Community and Regional Planning, the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, the School of Population and Public Health, and the Sauder School of Business.

    Nicole Tischler is a M.Arch student in the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture program at UBC. She holds a BA in Graphic Design from Lawrence Technological University in Michigan. Nicole is interested in innovative social housing design. She is currently working as a laser technician, leather craftswoman, and ice cream aficionado.
