Upcoming Events

Our school is the hub for design-based events in Calgary. Join us to learn more about the future of city building and how we can all make Calgary a better place to live.

To catalyze transformative change in Calgary, our school offers a very active calendar of symposia, workshops, conferences, exhibitions and gallery openings. While a number of these are targeted at professional audiences and construction industry specialists, many are open to the public. If you are interested in design and how to build a more sustainable, resilient, vibrant, and equitable city, you’re welcome to join us. 

Of particular interest is our Design Matters Lecture series, one of the longest running lecture series on architecture and design in Canada. Each year we invite some of the biggest and brightest lights in the world of design and city-building to give a public lecture at our downtown CDBLab.
