Architectural history is not simply the study of buildings, it is also the study of context and society. Culture and art influence architecture and, in turn, are influenced by it. Architecture embodies the story of a culture and reflects a constantly changing world-view.
This presentation will explore how architecture does not occur in a vacuum but reflects the culture that creates it and how, in turn, it influences culture. Architect James Youck will examine the relationship between art, architecture and historical context throughout western civilization, including examples from Regina.
James Youck is the Principal Architect at P3Architecture Partnership (P3A). James holds degrees in Art History and Architecture from the University of Saskatchewan and Carleton University respectively. He returned to Regina, his hometown, in 1994 to start his career after a short sojourn in Japan. He joined Pettick Phillips Partners Architects, now P3Architecture Partnership, becoming a partner in 2002. P3A has grown into the largest locally-owned design company in Regina, with an extensive portfolio of high-profile work.
