FOREST ADAPTATION A RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE. The climate in Canada's forests is shifting northward and to higher elevations at a rate that exceeds the ability of many tree species to naturally adjust. Long-term field trials, like the Government of British Columbia's Assisted Migration Adaptation. Trial, suggest

SHORT SUMMARY. “It is a question of surrendering to the wood, then following where it leads by connecting operations to a materiality, instead of imposing a form upon a matter” (Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari). The project HygroSkin Meteorosensitive Pavilion explores a novel mode of climate-responsive architecture.

Associated with the foregoing, and a prominent feature of most of the services is the high level of external dependence.

Adaptability and Flexibility. Adaptability. "Indecision is the key to flexibility!" The world of work is changing at an ever increasing pace so employers actively seek out graduates who can adapt to changing circumstances and environments, and embrace new ideas, who are enterprising, resourceful and adaptable.
