Valerie Marshall and Yana Kaiser are recent Master of Architecture graduates of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Over the summer of 2020 they edited and published Interiors of Isolation; a book that features creative work by designers and students contemplating the spaces they were confined to during the pandemic. The publication continues to accept and feature drawings from around the world.

This interview is part of our Covid-19 Speaker Series, which highlights the work of University of Toronto students who were recipients of the COVID-19 Student Engagement Award. The COVID-19 Student Engagement Award provided financial support to University of Toronto students developing innovative projects that have contributed to the response to the COVID-19 crisis.
This series was envisioned by and carried out by Iram Iram, Ajla Behri, Feroza Tareen, and Ebube Umeano, student staff in our Leadership and Co-Curricular Record team, with some editing assistance from Jonathan Collaton, the regular host of The Meeting Place.
