PROJECT SUMMARY

Heritage Reframed

University building renovation and extension

The renovation and extension project currently under construction provides a new home for the John H Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design on the site of a culturally significant nineteenth century structure.

The project rehabilitates existing urban, landscape, and architectural elements – and demonstrates the University of Toronto’s aim to foreground sustainability as part of its pedagogic program.
