Expected to be completed in September 2013, the Durham College Centre for Food will distinguish itself in the highly competitive field of culinary education by taking advantage of its rural setting on a large suburban campus in Whitby Ontario to narrate a story about the process of making a meal from “field to fork”. Designed by Gow Hastings Architects, students and visitors will journey through the inner workings of the school, showcasing food distribution rooms, a 150-seat lecture theatre, change rooms, faculty offices, classrooms and an array of hospitality and culinary labs that will circle a central atrium.

As part of the Sukkahville Design Competition in Toronto, organized by the Kehilla Residential Programme, Christina Zeibak and Daphne Dow were selected as winners for their ‘Hegemonikon’ exhibition. The seat of the soul which rules and guides all the others, the project is considered to exist within the heart of all living things. The complete development of the human Hegemonikon comprises absolute rationality; it chooses action according to reason. This philosophy was the foundation and inspiration behind the design concept of this project. More images and the designers’ description after the break.
‘Embryonic Canopy’ Exhibition for the Sukkahville Design Competition / Craig Deebank and Gina Gallaugher
As part of the Sukkahville Design Competition in Toronto, organized by the Kehilla Residential Programme, Craig Deebank and Gina Gallaugher were selected as one of the finalists for his ‘Embryonic Canopy’ exhibition.

It challenges the notion of the traditional static Sukkah while creating a sense of wonder, intrigue and connection to the natural environment. More images and designers’ description after the break.
