We are honoured that our featured guest for the upcoming BEAT Dinner will be Joyce Hwang, Director of design office Ants of the Prairie. BEAT successfully creates opportunities for local design community to network and foster open dialogue. Our dinners require an engagement with a delicious meal within a unique context and among incredible company.
Joyce Hwang founded her Buffalo-based firm Ants of the Prairie in 2004 as an architecture and research practice “dedicated to developing creative approaches in confronting the pleasures and horrors of our contemporary ecologies.” Recent and ongoing projects such as Bat Tower (Ashford Hollow, New York), Bat Cloud (Tifft Nature Preserve, Buffalo, New York)—each in collaboration with biologist Katharina Dittmar and structural engineer Mark Bajorek—and bird and bat Habitat Wall realize her firm’s goal to “consider challenges posed by ecological conditions today, not as limitations, but rather as instigators for innovative practice.”
Hwang is also a Sessional Lecturer at University of Toronto John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.
