In last year’s class Architecture 101: How to Design Almost Anything, taught by Daniels Faculty instructor Jay Pooley, undergraduate students were asked to document the experience of a specific built environment over the course of a 24 hour day. They were tasked with capturing a building or urban environment at different scales including haptic (human touch, building detail), building (relationship to light, pathways) and city (urban fabric, wide angle shots).
As part of the thesis prep portion of a research option studio taught by Associate Professor John Shnier this past winter semester, Master of Architecture students were asked to create films as an exercise to explore the subject of their thesis projects.
Earlier this year, Daniels faculty and alumni participated in the conference "This Is Paradise: Art & Artists in Toronto" hosted by the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the University of Toronto Art Centre. The event explored the relationship between the urban context and local artistic cultures in Canada’s largest city.
This past Canada Day, Daniels Faculty MArch students Dimitrios Karopoulos and John Natanek, along with Ryerson student Adrian Bica, launched Colourful Shadow Pavillion in Jacques Cartier Park in Ottawa.
