Graduate students from the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS) had a notable showing at a major global research congress in June 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal.  Four students, together with Dr. Brian R. Sinclair, traveled to Lisbon to deliver presentations at “Architectural Research Addressing Societal Challenges”, the 10th International Conference of the European Association for Architectural Education (EAAE) and the Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC). 

Congratulations to our Architecture students, Cody Jew, Dan Syzmanski, Winston Yuen and Ivan Au, for winning the Emerging Young Architecture and Planning Program Design and Build Competition, organized by URB PRK and sponsored by Café Mosaics in Edmonton! Their urban space build project, the Barn(E), was unveiled on July 3 on Whyte Avenue in Edmonton and will remain in place until the end of August.

Many academics are driven, but Noel Keough has chosen a more active route to the summit of scholarly achievement.

As an accomplished planner and civil servant, Harry Harker’s lifelong career has included working with numerous municipalities in Alberta and British Columbia. On May 18, 2016, Harker was recognized by the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) and awarded the Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award for his long term commitment to the Institute and volunteerism.

Next month, the University of Calgary's Faculty of Environmental Design Dean Nancy Pollock-Ellwand will become a fellow of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) along with adjunct faculty member Douglas Olson.

Induction into the College of Fellows is the highest honour the society bestows on its members and is in recognition for their outstanding contributions to the profession.

Dr. Tsenkova was invited by The United Nations Secretary General to be a keynote panelist at the European Habitat Conference in Prague in March 2016.

While Louis Sullivan may have given the skyscraper artistic breath, it was William Le Baron Jenney who conceived the skyscraper format from its birth. A true Renaissance Man, Jenney was an architect, an engineer, and a landscape architect. His world travels brought him to study architecture informally, yet he studied architecture academically in France.
