Architecture at Danforth is founded on the principle that buildings can be designed to look great on the outside but also have to work on the inside. To that end, students design their own houses but also learn the building science that plays a vital part of good design. They use modern software and discover options to build their models traditionally or virtually on the computer which ensures that skills learned are valid in college/university and in the profession.
Students in grade 12 architecture work with the newest parametric design/build software to plan creative national pavilions on computers custom designed to run these programs efficiently. Later, they design a residence for an actual client.
