This week, the Daniels Faculty of Architecture Landscape and Design announced the architect selected for the school's $14 million endowment expansion. Ofcourse, this will probably be completed just as I will be finishing (i.e. three years of putting up with construction) - just like always.
The architect selected is partners Monica Ponce de Leon and Nader Tehrani from Office dA. Their planned progress is being displayed in the school foyer right now. The drawings show a series of beautiful cladding that wraps the existing red brick building, as well as fragmented rooftop space that allows people to make better use of the Toronto cityscape.

I can't help but to wonder, though, what will happen to the beautiful view of the city I'm enjoying right now from my seat in studio...
