A  project led by Nader Tehrani MAUD ’91 of the firm NADAAA is featured in Toronto’s largest newspaper, The Globe and Mail. Praised as “already one of the best Canadian buildings of the past decade,” by the newspaper’s architecture critic, the new University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty building at One Spadina is set to open this fall. It will house programs in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and visual studies. “It’s a university space, but it’s also a civic space of the city,” says Tehrani. “By creating a space and prospect” – a view – “where there hadn’t been one before, it extends the public imagination.”

NADAAA is led by Tehrani in collaboration with partners Katherine Faulkner MArch ’93 and Daniel Gallagher MArch ’91.
