Oscar Ko on Tongxian

Vladimir Belogolovsky : And finally, is there one particular project built in China over the last decade or two that you particularly admire, either by Chinese or foreign architect?

Oscar Ko: I like a small brick building Tongxian Gatehouse, the artists-in-residence structure at the arts community outside of Beijing. It was designed by what used to be Boston-based Office dA and is now NADAAA led by Nader Tehrani and Katherine Faulkner. Everyone was talking about giant iconic projects for the Olympics at the time but to me it was this small building that stood out. I went to visit it and I really enjoyed its materiality, authenticity, and integrity.

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.
