Ryerson architecture students team up to beat the heat
from Inside Toronto
With predictions stating that climate change will bring about a massive rise in heat waves, students in Ryerson University's Department of Architectural Science undertook a wide-reaching project to help bring relief to vulnerable residents in high-rise buildings. Each year, students from all years in the department team up for a collaborative exercise, spending four days designing solutions to problems facing society. Associate professor George Kapelos selected heat waves as this year's theme, and students were tasked with coming up with passive, achievable solutions for low-income residents living in towers.
