Fall 2022 Public Programming – Announcements

The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto is delighted to present its Fall 2022 public program. Through a series of lectures, panel discussions, lectures and symposia, our goal is to foster meaningful dialogue on the important social, political and environmental challenges facing our world today. Among the questions raised: How to create new knowledge and make it a tool for critical reflection and, ultimately, for collective change?

Our programs – and the tough questions that drive them – address a range of topics that are central to what we do, including design and social justice, art and new media, urban development and housing, ecology and landscape resilience.

All events are free and open to the public. Register in advance and check the calendar for up-to-date details here.
