The Daniels Faculty is pleased to welcome Jack Diamond, the founding Principal of Diamond Schmitt Architects, to present one of this year’s bulthaup lectures.
Diamond has practiced architecture since 1968 and is recognized for his astute interpretation of site and context across a wide range of award-winning building types, from civic and residential to performing arts and academic projects. His firm, Diamond Schmitt Architects, has received numerous national and international awards for design and sustainability. Previous work includes the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, the Israeli Foreign Ministry, Southbrook Winery in Niagara, Ontario, La Maison Symphonique and the Life Sciences Complex at McGill University in Montreal. Current projects include the New Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, a private residence in Switzerland and a performing arts project in Texas.
Diamond is a Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Gold Medalist and an Honourary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. He is also a member of the Order of Ontario and an Officer of the Order of Canada.
The Daniels Faculty is proud to host a popular public lecture series featuring leading professionals and academics in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and visual studies.
All events are free and open to the public (unless otherwise stated). Tickets are not required for events at 230 College Street and seating is provided on a first come, first served basis. As many of our speakers attract capacity crowds, we recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
No latecomers will be admitted into the theatre once the lecture has started, however an overflow room with a live video-feed will be set up in Room 106 for those unable to obtain a seat in the main lecture hall. We also post videos of most evening lectures on our YouTube channel. If you have any questions about our events, please don’t hesitate to contact our Communications and Events Coordinator Pamela Walls at [email protected] or 416-978-2253.
