The building is to provide a dynamic experience for all aspects of university life; educational, social and cultural.
The concept grew out of the contained site conditions, building program and location within the urban context. The site is flanked by major vehicular routes along Portage Avenue and Memorial Boulevard with the pedestrian area of the main campus to the north. The building ‘begins’ as a dynamic curved façade of glass and activity following the street, until it breaks apart into a four storey terraced galleria to bring light and animation to all functions of the project.
