The Ontario Association for Applied Architectural Sciences Awarded the 2017 Student awards on May 26th at the Westin Hotel Ottawa during the RAIC/ OAA conference. We are pleased to announce that Humber College Placed First in both the Large Building Group category and First in the Large Building Individual category. This competition is open to all final year graduating students from all the Community Colleges in Ontario.
Humber Architectural Technology students Albert Thomson, Kevin Martindale and James Wilson placed First in the Large Building Group category with their Caledon Village Center. In fact this project was so strong that it was announced on stage that no second place was awarded. This is unprecedented.
Humber Architectural Technology student Lenny Petrilli placed first in the Large Building Individual category with his Alton Arts Center project. The jury commended his working drawing skills.
On behalf of the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology, Dr. Farzad Rayegani, Humber College congratulates all of the winners!

Her work has also been featured twice in Korea at the BAUKAIK International Architecture Exhibition at the Busan International Architectural Cultural Festival.
Build a strong future for yourself with a career in architectural technology.
Building construction continues to grow, and contractors expect the number of skilled laborers to decline, providing a need for new graduates to enter the architectural technology field.
Our graduates work:
The rapid growth in construction and building in Toronto and southern Ontario, combined with Humber’s strong reputation in the industry, provides graduates with strong employment opportunities.
