Daniels Wins Toronto Urban Design Award of Excellence

Jury comment:

“The University of Toronto Daniels Building and landscape at One Spadina Crescent grapples with a challenging but glorious site. The landmark roadway circle and heritage building were inherently disconnected from adjacent streets and the University of Toronto campus, but remained a highly visible and historically significant site in the city. The designers have ingeniously exploited these constraints delivering an iconic landscape and building expansion that serves as a significant anchor to the University campus and, playing up its 360 degrees of exposure, addresses the public around the circle. To the south, the original building stands proud above new tall grasses. To the east and west, entrance plazas serve to connect to adjacent neighbourhoods, and to the north, a planted amphitheatre forms a dramatic space for outdoor events and lounging.

In particular, the jury applauds the striking and experimental landscape design which is bold enough to make a statement in this space of non-stop traffic. Sloping planted landforms and a wild plant palette challenge expectations of more mundane campus landscape design and offer great diversity in a relatively small area. It serves as a marker of design experimentation – an important indication of the activities within the building’s walls.”

Daniels selected for AIA COTE Top 10 Award

Posted on April 22nd, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: _Daniels Building, Awards

On this Earth Day 2019, the AIA has announced the recipients of the 2019 AIA COTE Top 10 Awards which includes the Daniels Building. The COTE Top Ten Awards is the industry’s best-known award program for sustainable design excellence. Each year, ten innovative projects are recognized for their integration of design excellence with environmental performance.

The Daniels Building at the University of Toronto embodies a holistic approach to urban design and sustainability. As the new home for the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, its purpose is to engage students and the broader community in dialogue with the built environment. At the center of one of Toronto’s few circular parcels, the project anchors the southwest corner of the University and opens the circle to the public after years of inaccessibility. It restores the historic building while adding a new addition with integrated stormwater management, green roof, voided-slab floors, and ample daylight.

Read more on the sustainable and pedagogical aspects of the Daniels Building including the integration of community voices and needs, the ecological curriculum, water systems, energy and resources usage, and economy of means HERE.
