Held in the Eric Arthur Gallery at the University of Toronto, this exhibition runs from September 12-October 18, 2013 and features detailed architectural renderings and models depicting the ambitious plans to renew and transform Toronto’s historic One Spadina Crescent into a new home for the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design.
The revitalized site at One Spadina will be the new home of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. When complete, the 19th century Gothic Revival building and a major new contemporary expansion and landscape will be a working laboratory and showcase for the city. One Spadina will be a world-leading venue for education, research and public outreach on architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and the visual arts. The project is being designed by Nader Tehrani and Katie Faulker of the internationally acclaimed firm NADAAA. Adamson Associates and Public Work are the architects of record and landscape consultants, respectively. ERA Architects are serving as the preservation architects.
Nader Tehrani is a leading figure in architecture and design today. Among other accolades, he has received a remarkable 14 Progressive Architecture Awards, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Architecture (2002) and the Cooper Hewitt Award for Architecture (2007). Tehrani is also an influential pedagogue, and is currently Professor of Architecture and Head of the Department of Architecture at MIT. Katie Faulker, an architect who recently completed an MBA, joined NADAAA after 20 years of design and management experience in large-scale planning, academic, institutional and health-care projects.
