HBSA Architecture Crawl

07 May 2015 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM

The members of the Hamilton and Burlington Society of Architects warmly invite all conference attendees and their guests to join them on the HBSA Architecture Crawl to celebrate Hamilton’s architecture, burgeoning arts scene and renewed energy. This event takes place at five architecturally unique venues across the city;

  • a hidden 1830s mansion on the escarpment brow never before open to the public;
  • a former hydro transformer station, now a café and theatre;
  • the former machine hall of a 1900 era knitting mill, now an arts centre;
  • a new waterfront restaurant with the best patio in eastern Canada; and
  • the 22nd floor of a downtown office tower with a 360 degree view of the city.

Each venue will feature performances by notable local musicians, exhibitions by local artists, drinks and hors d’oeuvres by local restaurants and a cash bar. Shuttle buses will operate between venues throughout the evening, providing an informal tour of the city, and returning to the downtown event hub. A DJ will close the evening on the 22nd  floor.

Tickets include one complimentary drink for the evening, food samplings at each venue, and transportation between venues. A limited number of complimentary drink tickets will also be available from sponsors at each venue.

All proceeds go to The Threshold School of Building, a local charity that trains at-risk youth in the construction trades.

Tickets: Architects and conference guests $55, Intern Architects $35, Members of the public $65.

Event Sponsor: iSPAN Systems | Manufacturer of TOTAL JOIST
