Considering the Quake: Seismic Design on the Edge explores the elegant, and oftentimes elusive intersection between the aesthetics of architectural form and the technicality of structural design, through the lens of earthquake engineering. Curated by Professor Ghyslaine McClure, P.Eng and Dr. Effie Bouras, of the McGill University Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics, this exhibition emerged from their research on the resiliency of emergency shelters and civil protection buildings, such as schools and hospitals, in earthquake zones throughout the world.

Considering the Quake was originally presented at the Design Exchange in downtown Toronto. At the Center for Architecture in New York, it will include an installation by SOFTLab in consultation with engineers from Arup.
