We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Memorial for Witches" competition – Agata Mrozowski, Nadia Chan and Madison Appleby from Canada!
Honorable mention from Canada
We are three recent (2022) graduates of the Masters of Landscape Architecture program at the University of Toronto. Since graduating, Nadia Chan has assumed employment as a Senior Designer in a firm in New York City, Madison Appleby works as a Research Assistant at the University of Hong Kong, and Agata Mrozowski is employed at the University of Toronto as a Sessional Lecturer and Research Assistant.
We are an ad hoc collective of collaborators. We formed close friendships working alongside each other throughout our Masters education. Having graduated and spreading out across the planet, we were looking for opportunities to work together on a project and this was the perfect occasion.
As a group of landscape architects, the connections between land, culture, and the built environment are always at the forefront of the design process. We see ourselves as weavers, lacing threads across disciplines and points of view to highlight interrelationships key to forging just futures in the wake of climate catastrophes.
The open-ended briefs of architecture competitions allows us to imagine and speculate futures, as well as test them with the methods and tools we’ve learned from the discipline.
Architecture competitions are a great opportunity to define your own constraints, research interests, and methods. It is a space for exploration. Whether it be material processes, visualizations, theories, narratives, alternative approaches etc., competitions provide a platform for experimentation and can lend themselves fabulously to collaboration - even across continents!
