Toronto, Canada (May 2, 2018) – The University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in partnership with The Pritzker Architecture Prize is honoured to welcome Professor Balkrishna Doshi, the 2018 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, to present the public lecture "Paths Uncharted" on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. The lecture will take place at the school’s new home: the Daniels Building at One Spadina Crescent.
The public is invited to participate in this educational initiative, which aims to heighten discussion and debate around architecture, stimulate awareness of work in the field, and inspire greater creativity within the architectural profession. Professor Doshi’s lecture will be recorded and streamed live on Facebook and Instagram via @UofTDaniels. Following the event, the recording will be made available on the Daniels Faculty’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/UofTDaniels.
The Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate Lecture will be one of the debut events hosted by the Daniels Faculty in its new building, and provides a preview of the scale and caliber of future lectures, conferences, and exhibitions. Designed by the Boston-based architecture firm NADAAA in collaboration with ERA Architects and Adamson & Associates, the Daniels Building is now in the final stages of restoration, renovation, and reinvention.
With renowned programs in architecture, art, landscape architecture, and urban design, the Daniels Faculty is a hub for interdisciplinary education, research and outreach focused on the making of more environmental, beautiful, and socially sustainable cities. Located in downtown Toronto on the western edge of U of T’s St. George Campus, this dynamic laboratory for research and creative practice is home to many of Canada’s most innovative architects, landscape architects, artists, curators, and urban designers.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Pritzker Prize, and the first time that the international award will be presented in Canada. Its purpose is to honor annually a living architect whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.
