Waterloo School Of ArchitectureJennifer Davis was honoured to be invited as the External Reader for Waterloo Architecture Master’s Thesis Candidate, Talayeh Hamidya.  Talayeh’s thesis, MAKING THE CITY – A Document on Tactical Urbanism, overviewed four separate projects that were undertaken between June 2012 and October 2013 in Toronto by the author and her collaborators.

The Thesis Defence was Friday, December 12, 2014 at 82 Divadale Drive, Toronto, the future site of the Divadale Project.  This project is similar in format to The Weybourne Project and The Soudan Project which saw architects and artists create site specific installations for houses slated for demolition.  

The thesis was accepted by the examining committee with no revisions.  We’re looking forward to seeing future projects by Talayeh and The Society of Homo Ludens!
