A Summer Camp for Toronto’s Budding Builders by Sustainable

The Globe and Mail

By Dave Leblanc

I wish there had been a summer camp like this when I was young. There I was, going up the CN Tower for the umpteenth time, drawing pictures of the newly completed Royal Bank Plaza (and getting one published in the kid’s section of a major newspaper!) and learning how to pronounce names like Mies, Pei and Corbusier, but unsure of what it was, exactly, that made my 11-year-old heart to go pitter-patter.

OCAD University

By Joana Patrasc, second-year Graphic Design student

In just two years, the Sustainable Design Awards have grown from a small competition open only to second-year Industrial Design students into a university-wide competition judged by a panel of impressive experts, an awards reception night and a guest lecture by Core 77’s Allan Chochinov. The creator of the awards is third-year Industrial Design student Mike Lovas, who wanted to encourage his classmates to think about sustainability when they designed their projects.
