The Twelfth Annual Berkeley Undergraduate Prize for Architectual Design Excellence 2010
Berkeley Prize 2010

Tara Gaskin

"I have spent much of my life in Brantford, Ontario. The city was once a centre of the manufacturing industry in Canada, but the recession of  the 1980s and the advent of the suburban shopping mall in the 1970s have taken their toll.  Many abandoned industrial and commercial buildings dot the urban landscape. As a result, I have developed an interest in the sensitive issues surrounding heritage conservation.

Recently, my desire to learn about the Canadian landscape and building traditions have brought me to Canada's east coast where I study architecture at Dalhousie University in Halifax. I plan to explore historical structures and preservation as a thesis topic when I pursue a Masters degree in architecture."
