Tiffany Dang petitioned the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto asking about making changes. As a result - they came to an agreement.

In light of the recent renovations and plans for a new buiding to house the J. H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto, undergraduate architecture students have been displaced from their studio space and deprived of an appropriate work envronment. 

Speaking on behalf of fellow BAAS students, it is imperative that we have a space to do studio work in outside of class to complete class work. It is unreasonable for the faculty to expect students to have the space at home to build models and the resources to transport them to school.

In addition, as architects, we are all aware of the importance that studio culture plays in the successful education of architecture students. To deprive students of this environment is to give them inferior education; this is unacceptable for a world renowned institution such as the University of Toronto .

      It is unacceptable for such a prestigious university to be unable to provide a decent learning environment and equipment for its students.

      Very important part of studio experience to have a space so students can have a place to work together and contribute to artistic/constructive criticism

      Because it provides a place where I can choose to hold models rather than carry it through the commute which can possibly be destructive idea.
