My applications to a Masters of Landscape Architecture

Hi Tony,

I would like to share the news with you about my applications to a masters of landscape architecture. I was offered admission to the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia and the University of Guelph, with generous entrance scholarships for each. I would like to thank you for advising me with my project in architectural modelling class and for all of your advice on portfolios and letters of intent. A substantial part of my portfolio consisted of pieces from your perspective drawing and architectural modelling classes. I’m sure that your suggestions and the skills you taught me helped to strengthen my submission.

Kind regards, E.

Thank you K.G. – Teachers love to hear from appreciative students. Good Luck!

Hi Tony,

Thank you so much for your reference letter. I received the offer from UBC
Environmental Design Program!  Your courses really helped with my portfolio. Especially the museum  project, it made my portfolio stronger and more complete.  Additionally, remember you persuaded me from quitting the application last time we met in the hallway? You have no idea know how much I appreciate that.
Best,  K.G.

Architecture & Model Making for Teens Up & the Young at Art

Architecture & Model Making for Teens Up & the Young at Art

Summer 2016  – Shadbolt Center Burnaby BC (15 and up, way up) August 2nd to 5th   (10:00-3:00) (4 days)

Teens and the young at art of any age learn some of the basic hands-on design studio skills for architecture. By collaborating with other students we will make a “city of the future”.  Students will sketch a plan, then construct their own individual building using glue-gun and foamcore, and place it in a streetscape with other buildings to be photographed. With an emphasis on fun and fantasy we will create a whimsical , imaginative futuristic metropolis (inspired by the classic movie “Metropolis”.). This intensive is ideal for students looking to build a portfolio for studies in architecture, urban design, animation or set design, and many other design occupations – or anyone who just likes the idea!


Instructor: Tony O’Regan, Master’s Degree Environmental Design (Architecture Specialty) and lots of other stuff.

Congrats to this young woman! I am very happy for you! (Hard work to come, but just put one foot in front of the other – you’ll make it :)

Hi Tony,

I am thrilled to tell you that I am accepted to the Master of Architecture program at UBC!

I think this wouldn’t have happened without your support.

Thank you so much for your advice, good feedback and all your support.

I can’t appreciate enough.

Best Regards,  Ms JJ

A very successful Architecture applicant! Congratulations!

Hi Tony,

I would like to update you on the status of my applications to grad school for architecture and landscape architecture. I am overjoyed to inform you that I received letters of acceptance to both University of Toronto (MLA) and University of British Columbia (MLA & MArch). In addition, UBC included a generous entrance scholarship with my admission offer. With this unexpected award I am leaning heavily towards UBC but I will spend the next few weeks considering my options.

I want to thank you for your support during the continuing studies course I took at Emily Carr. The project you created was well conceived for an introduction to architectural modeling and made for excellent additions to my portfolio. I also want to thank you for the time you spent looking over several drafts of my portfolio. I am certain that your suggestions helped make my application stand out to the admissions committees at UBC and UofT. I will let you know when I have made my final decision.

Best regards, BBD

Kudos to M! She is accepted to Cornell University, MLArch Program

Hi Tony,

… I took some courses with you in the Fall (2015) at Emily Carr, namely, the Architectural Modelling and Creative Drawing for Architecture classes.

I just wanted to let you know that I received my first letter of acceptance a few days ago to Cornell University for the Master’s of Landscape Architecture, and that I was also offered a monetary award to conduct research with a professor of my choosing!

Thank you for helping me not only to create pieces for my portfolio, but for also teaching me skills that will be invaluable during my future studies in landscape architecture. I truly believe that it was these courses which helped me to both create a well-presented application, as well as have a better understanding of what is expected in this area of work.

Thanks again,  M. A.
