galt. is a non-profit, student-run, and peer-reviewed publication based at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture in Galt, Ontario, which is located in Block 1 of the Haldimand Tract—land promised to the Six Nations under the Haldimand Treaty of 1784. These treaty lands extend for 10 km on either side of the Grand River, from its source at Dundalk until its end at Lake Erie. We live and design on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabe, and the Haudenosaunee peoples.
We are dedicated to publishing student and young professional work in the context of a larger architectural discourse that brings together the voices of designers, activists, and academics. Published annually by Riverside Architectural Press in Toronto, each issue addresses a theme that is informed by a critical perspective on the state of architecture, urbanism, and design.
