The most recent issue of U of T Magazine celebrates "The Boundless Campaign's Remarkable Achievement" and includes stories of the impact that the generous donations from our friends and alumni have had on Daniels Faculty students and research.
Bahia Marks, pictured above, is a John and Myrna Daniels Scholar who is exploring how neighbourhood residents can contribute to the design of their communities through both her work as a Master of Architecture student and as a volunteer with the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program in St. James Town.
Shaine Wong, who received the John E. (Jack) Irving Prize while working on her Master of Landscape Architecture Thesis, explored how craters from exploded landmines in Cambodia could be turned into something useful, such as rainwater reservoirs or canals to benefit farmers.
“Landscape architecture is about so much more than making things look pretty,” she says. “When you look around, you start to see hidden opportunities in every challenge.”
The Daniels Faculty's new Fabrication Laboratory also received a shout out among new spaces that will help U of T researchers make the next big discovery.
