An article on Railway Technology looks at whether free public transit makes sense economically and interviews Daniel Hess, associate professor of urban and regional planning in the UB School of Architecture and Planning. “Although it would be valuable for transport managers in other cities to learn about this experience,” he said, “the Tallinn fare-free public transport program provides scant transferable evidence about how such a program can operate outside of a politicized context, which was crucial to its implementation in Estonia.”

An article on Canada’s National Post reports on Sky House on Stoney Lake, a holiday house in Ontario designed by Julia Jamrozik, assistant professor of architecture, and Coryn Kempster, adjunct assistant professor of architecture, both in the UB School of Architecture and Planning. “The quality of the daylight in the upper volume is beautiful; it’s an indoor space that really feels like the outdoors,” Jamrozik said. “And the fact that we were able to embed these playful moments into the design also makes it a success; these things make the experience of the house memorable and fun for this family.” Articles also appeared in the news outlets that include the Windsor Star, Regina Leader-Post and Ottawa Citizen.
