University of Toronto: John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design
In 2013, the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design launched a dramatic makeover that will transform this long-neglected icon into a state-of-the-art centre for education and research focused on sustainable architecture, landscape and city-building. The ambitious plan involves an innovative north-facing expansion of the historic building, with a new three-storey complex that will be a model for environmental and urban design. The new facility will feature flexible design studios, fabrication spaces and research laboratories. Planning for the project includes a series of outward-looking pavilions, one of which will become the home of the Global Cities Institute, a new cross-disciplinary research centre.
