Daniels Faculty graduates working as part of the Toronto-based office Ja Architecture Studio received an Honorable Mention for their submission to the Guggenheim Helsinki Competition. The competition was launched in June 2014 to invite design proposals for the new Guggenheim museum located on Helsinki’s harbour. With 1,715 submissions, the event set the record in attracting the most number of entries for a design competition.
Logan Littlefield, who will graduate from the Daniels Faculty's Master of Landscape Architecture program this June, has received a Mellon Symposium Travel Award from the Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks. The award allows students to attend the River Cities: Historical and Contemporary Symposium, which was held at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC on May 8th-9th.
The Daniels Faculty has been reaching out to alumni from all programs to ask them to help spread the word about the exhibition, dialogues, and alumni reception we have planned to celebrate our 125th Anniversary. Pictured above are graduates spanning eight decades who have offered to volunteer.
