Ryerson University, Faculty of Continuing Education

Toronto, Ontario

2004 - 2006

In association with Lett Architects

This new building in the heart of Ryerson University's downtown campus serves more than 45,000 adult students with 1,000 courses and 71 certificate programs delivered through distance learning, on-campus courses, and off-site programs for corporate clients. The design process was highly collaborative, involving user groups and other stakeholders throughout. With its dramatic cantilever over the pond, choice of materials, incorporation of a heritage facade, and integration of landscape, the project conveys a dynamic high technology image while respecting the urban and academic environments.
