The Summer 2019 edition of Arquine examines the ability of architecture to show and to teach by taking a look at architecture schools around the world. Among the works featured are the Daniels Building and the Melbourne School of Design, both schools that inspire their occupants through their form and integration.

“[The Daniels Building], in bringing together restoration, renovation, and reinvention, is a hub for education, research, and outreach focused on the creation of more environmental, beautiful, and socially sustainable cities.”

“The building itself is a laboratory for experimentation and research…. self-explanatory in its operation and architecture, revealing a logic of construction layers as a pedagogical tool.”

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.
