PRLog - Apr. 10, 2014 - TORONTO, Ontario -- (Toronto) That certain quality that defines and supports Canadian identity extends to include architecture, landscape, design, product and real estate. However, until now, the market has lacked an online portal that embraces, promotes and understands this uniquely Canadian position on this segment.
Enter Houseporn.ca (http://www.houseporn.ca/)
While the resulting site and growing community serve a pragmatic need in the marketplace, what has evolved on the site is simultaneously fascinating, unique and visually stunning, according to Fudge: “It's difficult to find websites dedicated to architecture, landscape, design, product and real estate that are exclusive to Canada.Houseporn.ca is an opportunity to promote Canada's historical and contemporary vernacular, our homegrown talent and showcase how our diverse distinctive landscape shapes our domestic environments,”
In addition to serving as an information and inspiration portal about Canadian design and products, Fudge is offering paid Internship and mentorship opportunities for students enrolled in the fields of Architecture, Landscape, Interior Design and Housing Products, “This is an opportunity to help the voice of the next generation in the fields of housing,” explains Fudge.
He hopes to start and keep prominent the conversation that surrounds all things Canadian housing, amongst those fascinated with the Canadian History of Art & Architecture-
Fudge says, “Houseporn.ca is specifically geared to mentoring students in these fields. We guide students in their research and writing skills, while helping them cultivate their points of view. By posting their particular interests in our publication, students are effectively creating an on-line portfolio for prospective employers - or clients - around the globe.”
Since its inception in 2013, Houseporn.ca has been well-received by the design and housing community, and continues to grow in its success.
“We've been thrilled with the response to date. Canadians are both quietly patriotic and pro-education, while readers around the world are increasingly fascinated by the domestic lives of us Canucks,” explains Fudge.
“The site, not even a year old, is garnering attention from those in the industry, the public at large and, most importantly, students. We're happy to have created a platform where students have an opportunity to earn an income - as their schedule allows - that promotes their education while putting it into practice.”
