Part­ner Pina Pet­ri­cone was select­ed by the Daniel’s Fac­ul­ty at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to to speak at the posthu­mous launch of Bar­ry Samp­son Teach­ing + Prac­tice as one of the book’s con­tib­u­tors, where she recounts her per­son­al expe­ri­ence as a close col­legue of Samp­son. The archi­tect and pro­fes­sor was a long-time pro­fes­sor of Archi­tec­ture at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to and found­ing part­ner of Baird Samp­son Neuert, a cel­e­brat­ed crit­i­cal prac­tice based in Toron­to. Samp­son is remem­bered for his sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the Cana­di­an archi­tec­tur­al land­scape and his men­tor­ship of many aspir­ing design­ers and prac­ti­tion­ers. The book is an ini­tia­tive of Mr. Sampson’s peers to record his teach­ings and prac­tice through the lens of three key projects from his notable career. Oth­er notable con­trib­u­tors include Bruce Kuwabara, Brigitte Shim, and George Baird. View the record­ing of the talk below. 

Bar­ry Samp­son Teach­ing + Prac­tice is avail­able for pur­chase here. Pina con­tributed an essay on Bar­ry Samp­son’s exem­plary Teach­ing and Prac­tice. Oth­er notable con­trib­u­tors were Bri­an Carter, Annette LeCuy­er
