This fall, The Eric Arthur Gallery at the University of Toronto will showcase the work of graduate students from the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in its exhibition Here Be Monsters.
Featuring student work from the 2010-2011 school year, Here Be Monsters examines uncharted territories of architecture, landscape and urban design, opening them up to the explorations and imagination of the school’s emerging designers.
From the earliest days of human exploration, uncharted areas on maps were marked with monsters symbolic of the threats posed by geographies unknown. Today, Daniels graduate students seek to explore sites in a similar way. Rather than discover mythical creatures, the work of Daniels students explores new architectures, landscapes and visions for cities and their communities.
Here Be Monsters runs until November 26, and was curated by Omar Aljebouri, Catherine Dean, Salome Nikuradze, and Axel Van Chee.
