Announcing Daniels 2011-2012 Public Lecture Series

Toronto, Ontario, September 21, 2011 – The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design is excited to announce its 2011-2012 Public Lecture Series. Starting this fall, Daniels will host a stellar collection of international experts and visionaries – all of whom are leaders in the fields of architecture, design, and sustainable urbanization. Representing the most forward-thinking design firms and research institutions from around the world, each speaker in this year’s series is redefining practice surrounding construction, technology, culture, and the city.

Public interest in architecture and the urbanizing landscape continues to grow both locally and abroad. These lectures are part of a broader stream of talks, exhibitions, and symposia that Daniels has planned for the academic year, and are part of a program being advanced by Dean and Professor of Architecture & Urbanism Richard Sommer to further discourse on how to better design and inhabit the built environment.
