Azure’s Top 4 Urban Design Schools Includes the IwB

Posted by Michelle Hotchin in News with 0 Comments

Azure’s latest issue just featured the Top Design Schools in North America (and beyond), and the Institute without Boundaries is featured as one of only 4 schools listed in the Urban Design category! We’re in good company too - MIT, McGill & Kent State also made the shortlist. Check out the details in the latest issue on newstands now!

And So It Begins: 2012-13 Orientation Week

Posted by Michelle Hotchin in News with 0 Comments

This year’s Orientation Week kicks off to a great start with IwB alumni introductions and visits to some great local Toronto studios like Bruce Mau, CUP designs, 401 Richmond and Urban Strategies.

Learning where to get the best coffee & nutella cornetti at Fusaro’s

Later the new class of ’13 got to explore some key local features like Fusaro’s and Mystic Muffin (where they all got free apple cake from Elias).

Mini-workshop on secondary research techniques at the GBC library

Other fun activities included learning and practicing some basic techniques for both primary and secondary research by visiting the library and venturing out into the neighbourhood for some adventure research.

Day 2 and the class is already hard at work, prepping adventure research presentations

This group showed their flare for presentations, using the whole space and both high- and low-tech storytelling techniques to share the World House systems they found demonstrated in the communities around the School of Design at 230 Richmond.

Each monitor represents a different location around the neighbourhood

They also got to meet lots of IwB faculty & staff during the course of the week.

Luigi Ferrara stops in for some impromptu architecture lessons

On Friday the students were all introduced (or re-introduced) to using InDesign to create presentations in preparation for evening Pecha Kuchas.

The first salad day in action

Then that afternoon we ventured back out into the heat to visit the new underpass park near River Street and shoot some amazing photos of this adventurous new group.

IwB Class of 2013

Overall it was a great week, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish this year. Next week’s bootcamp is going to be even tougher but just as exciting (we hope)!

Smile!

The Dublin Project Launches

For those of you that don’t know, the IwB 2012/2013 Major Project is The Dublin Project. Students that apply and are accepted into the program will travel to Dublin for a 5 week research trip where they will exame the various systems that make up the city.  When they return they’ll propose new and innovative sustainable urban practices that build on the existing planning practices of the city.

The Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) recently announced the partnership between the IwB, the City of Dublin and the DIT.

The MA in Design Practice - The Dublin Project is an internationally unique approach by a city and higher education to learning and innovation in the 21st century. It is a one-year, three-semester programme, delivered by DIT and supported by a large network of academic and practicing industry experts drawn from both DIT and the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) based in Toronto, Canada. These will include experts in graphic, spatial, digital, product and systems design, through to urban planning, architecture, community engagement, health sciences, engineering and business.

The objective of this programme is to leverage the combined talents of the Masters students, DIT academics, City officials and industry experts. The course will provide real-time experience to the Masters students to collaborate with DCC in enhancing the City’s diverse operations and how citizens experience them.

Each year, students on MA in Design Practice - The Dublin Project will focus on specific issues facing the City. In this first year, they will work in collaboration with students from the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) based in George Brown College, Toronto. The two student groups on either side of the Atlantic will focus on the same issue and the IWB group will visit Dublin in October to familiarise themselves with the city and to place the challenge in context. The groups will then continue to collaborate during the year, culminating in a joint exhibition to take place in 2013 in both Dublin and Toronto.
