NiS+TS has collaborated with students from Dalhousie Faculty of Architecture and Planning and NSCAD University in design/build “Freelabs” during the summers of 2014, 2016 and 2017. These projects involve designing innovative architectural and artistic models responding to the histories and spaces of the Halifax Explosion.
