Abstract: 

Architecture is known to have two definitions: one relating to the processes as a tectonic-centric discipline while the other is used to describe the structure of a complex system. Leveraging both of these definitions, this thesis explores the issue of interdisciplinary in order to challenge how architectural knowledge might continue to draw on disciplines beyond its boundaries and the implications this may have for both the profession and practice. This position finds reason through the lens of the Canadian Council for the Arts, an institute which inherently promotes Canadian culture through awarding grants and prizes based on disciplinary categories. From this, the Canada Council for the Arts will be further explored by means of a proposal that addresses concepts of content production and access to knowledge. This proposal acts as a means to discuss how the exchange of knowledge between disciplines is a relevant concern for architectural production.
