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.

Professor Elizabeth Fenuta has an impressive background in art and architecture. With her unique inter-disciplinary approach to spatial practices, she has worked at many award-winning architecture firms in Toronto, studied architecture in Italy, and co-founded her own architectural company – Hout Architecture.
Notably, she has participated in the National Holocaust Monument Competition and was selected from 73 teams as one of six finalists and she has also curated several exhibitions such as In-Progress at the LRC Gallery in Humber College. Elizabeth Fenuta’s work and research has been featured in various peer-reviewed journals such as Metropolis Magazine and Spacing Magazine. Her work has also been featured twice in Korea at the BAUKAIK International Architecture Exhibition at the Busan International Architectural Cultural Festival.
In this program students will learn how buildings are constructed and how to prepare technical construction documents and design presentation drawings. Students use state-of-the-art computer facilities and the most current software including AutoCAD, Building Information Modelling, and 3D software Google SketchUp. Learning is based on lectures, seminars, small groups, team assignments, and labs.
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.
