Our theme this year, Métissage, reflects both the spirit behind the historic city of Québec, and the spirit we will foster at this year’s Conference: The Fruitful Encounter of Differences. The APT Québec City 2014 Conference will provide an opportunity to reflect on and explore the concept of métissage as it relates to the built environment and what we each bring to share and learn.
