Fall 2022 Public Program – Announcements


The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce its Fall 2022 public program. Through a series of book talks, panel discussions, lectures, and symposiums, our goal is to foster meaningful dialogue about the important social, political, and environmental challenges facing our world today. Among the questions raised: How can we create new knowledge and use it as a tool for critical reflection and ultimately for collective change?

Our programs – and the tough questions that motivate them – address a range of issues central to our work, including design and social justice, art and new media, urban development and housing, and ecology and landscape resilience.

All events are free and open to the public. Register in advance and check the calendar for up-to-date details here.
