Daniels Faculty alumna, Yupin Lee (MArch 2018), is a featured speaker at TEDxUofT.
Li, who is currently an Intern Architect at Adamson Associates Architects in Toronto, received a Toronto Urban Design Award in 2017 for her project, “Flex,” a flexible, midrise building that could accommodate growing families. Her proposal captured the attention of a variety of media, including CBC, VICE, BlogTO, and Now magazine.
TEDxUofT was created to bring together “the brightest minds in the University of Toronto community to spark conversation and connection.” Scheduled for March 23, Li’s talk is part of the day-long event, Spectrum, held at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts.
Li's lecture will focus on Toronto’s housing industry.
The city of Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in Canada mostly due to its sense of “livability”. As the city grows and the population increases, there are numerous novel urban challenges that Toronto is currently facing. Urbanism affects everyone and involves a multidisciplinary approach.
Li’s interests include the urban fabric and the complexities of high-density living. She is currently working on commercial high-rise architecture and hopes to create meaningful change in the city of Toronto.
