During this summer of social distancing, the Daniels Faculty will be moving its summer camps and workshops online. Canadian Architect magazine has taken notice. They write:
The Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto has a variety of offerings. Exploring Careers in Design is a program for late high school and undergraduates interested in a future career architecture. The online program, which will be delivered using tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, will include lectures by practicing architects and faculty, as well as virtual field trips to local buildings and professional offices. The month-long course will also feature one-on-one instruction and feedback, training in representation, model-building, and related skills.
The Daniels Faculty has two offerings for younger children. Its Digital Design camp, for 12-to-14-year-olds, is a week-long program that introduces participants to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Sketch Up. A new Minecraft Camp, for ages 8 to 14, uses the popular game to explore the fundamentals of visual thinking, urban planning, and environmental planning. The program was developed with University of Toronto eSports.
