2018 AZ Awards of Merit: Architecture Commercial/Institutional Over 1,000 Square Metres: Daniels Building

Completed in September 2017 by Boston-based NADAAA, the near-decade-long transformation of the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design included relocating it to a landmark roundabout in the southwestern corner of the school’s downtown campus. The $69-million renovation and expansion of a 19th-century building in the middle of Spadina Crescent has redefined the area, raised the faculty’s public profile and created a future-ready teaching facility that will shape generations of Canadian design leaders. Among other gestures, the bi-axial organization of the new Daniels Building reinforces the faculty’s evolving urban context. A roof system of cantilevered trusses adds yet more wow factor.
