Congratulations to Professor Wayne Caldwell who was elected as a Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Planners at the CIP national conference in Ottawa on July 4, 2019.
Landscape Architects, Maurice Nelischer, Professor Emeritus, with critical help from Kendall Flower (BLA, MPlan alumnus ), have gained approval for the conceptual design for the forecourt plaza for the new Gordon Lang School of Business and Economics. The site is in front of Macdonald Hall which was recently renovated to accommodate the new college. Construction on the plaza will be started in April 2020. This is a highly visible campus location at the north end of Wingard Walk . Nelischer designed the southern terminus of the walk at Branion plaza which was built a few years ago.
Congratulations to Bachelor of Landscape Architecture students who won the top spot of the BOUNDLESS: A Post-Secondary Design Challenge focused on creative solutions for accessibility in Ontario.
The winning entries are on free public display at Design Exchange in Toronto. This weekend is the final weekend of the exhibition.
Canadian regional development today involves multiple actors operating within nested scales from local to national and even international levels. Recent approaches to making sense of this complexity have drawn on concepts such as multi-level governance, relational assets, integration, innovation, and learning regions.
