Carleton Studio at DIALOG: Rail Deck Park

Carlton at DIALOG
For the next six weeks, graduate students from the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University will be joining the DIALOG Toronto Studio to explore concepts for the Rail Deck Park – a project currently being investigated by the city of Toronto for potential implementation in the city’s downtown core.Carleton Students (1 of 1)

Why the Carleton Studio will be a great experience for these 15 graduate students

The students will be guided by mentors from all DIALOG disciplines – Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical and Structural Engineering; Sustainability; Urban Planning; Landscape Architecture; and Interior Design – ensuring the students are immersed in a true DIALOG WAY of working.

DIALOG has designed the entire curriculum for this six week term. In addition to integrated weekly desk-crits and pin-ups, we’ve lined up an incredible roster of industry experts to share their experiences with the students – they’ll benefit from the guidance and support of professionals who are deeply invested in the outcomes for the Rail Deck Park: receiving critical input from the City of Toronto Planning Department; tackling urban challenges with major Developer stakeholders; and collaborating with the many city-builders who will be participating in the studio curriculum.

Check often for updates on the Carleton Studio’s progress. We’ll be posting student perspectives and professional insights throughout the six week term.

Why DIALOG decided to develop this initiative

DIALOG’s decision to support this learning initiative for Carleton University students is grounded in our commitment to meaningfully contribute to the wellbeing of our communities. Providing students with the experience of working in a professional studio alongside committed city-builders – who genuinely care about the future of Toronto – is an investment in our future and the people who will be building our urban centres.

DIALOG believes in the potential of the Rail Deck Park to significantly improve the social-economic face of Toronto. We understand this project requires multiple perspectives and disciplines collaborating together. As an integrated firm that engages in initiatives that improve community wellbeing, often at the grassroots level, the success of this project is something we truly care about, and is one of the reasons we have chosen to fully support this experience for Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.

We hope this is the beginning of long standing partnership with Carleton University and the first of many Studios at DIALOG!
