    What brought you to UWaterloo? 

    Three things: the University, the School of Architecture, and the expertise of my postdoctoral supervisor. Waterloo engineering is one of the top faculties of engineering in Canada. The university is also strategically located in the Waterloo Region, close to hustle and bustle of Toronto yet offering a quiet and peaceful environment to work, research and raise a family. The university also has amazing facilities and diverse body of students, staff, and faculty. The overall atmosphere is very encouraging to excel.

    Congratulations to Tristan Van Leur and Samantha Eby, who won 1st Prize in The Toronto Affordable Housing Challenge for their project, Cooperative Corners.

    According to the jury, ”This project cleverly identifies a unique opportunity to capitalize on an underutilized feature of the Toronto residential landscape – the corner lot – and proposes a new typology that creates gentle density, design flexibility, and the possibility of implementation in various types of residential settings.
