John H. Daniels Faculty of
Landscape, and Design
The Daniels Faculty is one of the leading schools of architecture, landscape and design in North America, with a global footprint. With the support of the Boundless campaign, we have articulated an ambitious vision for the Faculty, which involves relocating and expanding the school at One Spadina Crescent – a site of deep historical significance in Toronto.
Our plans for One Spadina will reconnect this vitally important site to the city in a new way, reinventing it as a gateway to the University and an iconic hub for urban design. The original, heritage building will be renovated and integrated with a new, stunning work of contemporary architecture on the north end of the circle.
The revitalized One Spadina, designed by Nader Tehrani, principal of the internationally acclaimed firm NADAAA, and collaborator Katie Faulkner, will be an urban design exemplar, and a catalyst for the transformation of U of T’s western edge on the Spadina corridor. Once completed, One Spadina will be a showcase for the city and the University, and a world-leading venue for studying, conducting research, and advocating for architecture, landscape, and sustainable urbanization.
