Architecture and design changes the world we live in and how we interact with our environment; well-designed spaces and places improve a community’s well-being and health.
Graduates will have the potential to work within communities and provide innovative design solutions for housing and settlement patterns.
This new type of architect will work to maximize efficiencies in energy conservation, stimulate economic activity, shift focus to more renewable building materials, and design landscapes in a meaningful and respectful fashion.
Ever since he can remember, Christopher Baziw has dreamed of becoming an architect.
“Architecture has always been a passion and love of mine,” he said. “I was one of those kids who loved to play with Legos and was lucky enough to have parents that trusted me to build a tree fort out of lumber in my backyard.”
Now entering his third year at the Laurentian University McEwen School of Architecture, Baziw is working toward his goal and being recognized for his efforts. He has been presented with the Peddler’s Pub Architecture Award, established by longtime downtown Sudbury business owners and strong Laurentian University supporters, the Gainer family. The award recognizes students who demonstrate technical knowledge in their design work while maintaining a high grade point average.
