Ra’anaa Brown, and Clara James — for 15-minute presentations followed by breakout sessions to expand the conversations around these questions and more.It is the last of three workshops that lead up to the Café Capital (Canadian Architecture Forums on Education) event being held this September at Carleton University, hosted by the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism with Associate Professor Ozayr Saloojee, Assistant Professor Natalia Escobar- Castrillón, and Assistant Professor Piper Bernbaum.  (
