sg2018 University of Toronto, Canada
7th - 12th May 2018

 
 

Our host for sg2018 is the University of Toronto, John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.

Founded in 1827, the University of Toronto is Canada's largest and most distinguished university. Consistently ranked Canada's top research-intensive university, UofT offers teaching programs in 17 academic divisions. Its programs are primarily held on the historic St. George campus in downtown Toronto.

The Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design offers professional graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and visual studies  — as well as unique undergraduate programs that use architectural studies and visual studies as a lens through which students may pursue a broad, liberal arts-based education. Its mission is to educate students, prepare professionals, and cultivate scholars who will play a leading role in creating more culturally engaged, ecologically sustainable, socially just, and artfully conceived environments.

The growth of the school's programs and faculty ranks has occasioned the building of a new home for the Daniels Faculty at One Spadina Crescent, one of Toronto’s most historic sites. The transformation of this iconic building will double the size of our previous facilities and create a new and unprecedented district for education, research, and public outreach on architecture, urbanism, and the visual arts.
