Crossing Borders Competition


Recent (2012) M.Arch. (professional) graduates Marie-Ève Lamarre and Caileigh MacKellar have won an Honourable Mention in the competition Crossing Borders – Design Responses to Global Issues in the Developing World for their project "Off the Wall, Jacmel, Haiti," developed in the summer studio taught by Francisca Insulza at the School during May and June of 2012. The contest invited students and alumni from Ontario design schools to submit school projects that illustrate the active role that designers can play in conceiving sustainable strategies within communities in the developing world. Architecture, landscape, urban planning, and interior design projects of any scale were welcome.

The jury included Ian Chodikoff, Adrian Blackwell, Luna Khirfan, Mauricio Quiros Pacheco, Sean Kelly, and Taymoore Balbaa. The winning entries will be exhibited in a show at the Larry Wayne Richards Gallery of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto. The competition was hosted by Architecture for Humanity and the Daniels Faculty.
