University of Toronto Anne-Marie Armstrong’s AAnotated Seminar at University of Toronto

AAmp principal Anne-Marie Armstrong held a graduate seminar at University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, called “In the Margins: Annotating the Everyday & Overlooked in our Built Environment” which is based around our AAnnotated journal in the studio. This seminar examines the everyday spaces encountered in our built environment that are often overlooked or dismissed as arbitrary, unstudied, anonymous, or contingent. By engaging in practices of careful observation, documentation, and speculation upon these spaces, the seminar encourages students to center the diverse needs, challenges, opportunities and identities of communities, and challenge established ‘top-down’ practices in design. The students produced some amazing work and research, which we hope to share with you soon!
