The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, is a Faculty of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The Faculty is located at 230 College Street, but will move to One Spadina Crescent in 2014. The current dean is Richard M. Sommer.


A Department of Architecture was established at the University of Toronto in 1890, making it the first architecture program in Canada.

The five-year Bachelor of Architecture was created in 1928, and the department was renamed the School of Architecture in 1933. Courses in town and regional planning were added in 1933, and the landscape courses were offered in 1934. In 1967 the school was granted faculty status with three departments: Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban and Regional Planning.

In 1998 the University of Toronto approved a name change for the division to Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, heralding the establishment of a suite of new graduate programmes: Master of Architecture, Master of Landscape Architecture, and Master of Urban Design. The school was renamed in 2008 after a major donor.[1]
