Woodsworth is ranked one of Toronto’s contemporary architecture gems

Globe and Mail architecture critic, Alex Bozikovic, gives Woodsworth a shout out in 'Toronto Architecture: A City Guide'

In the latest issue of Toronto Architecture: A City Guide, Woodsworth college gets a feature! Alex Bozikovic took to Twitter to say it was one of his favourite hidden gems of contemporary architecture. Alex is the architecture critic for the Globe and Mail, not only covering architecture locally but throughout Canada, even globablly.

 It is an honour that Woodsworth was feautured amongst other iconic Toronto buildings, buildings such as University College and City Hall. Woodsworth was originally a series of Victorian houses on St. George, but Barton Myers' associates and KPMB created the contemporary sleek look it has today, with renovations and the addition of our L shaped building. This shape creates our serene Peter F. Brofman courtyard, with the row of large doors opening up in the warmer months for the college to have an indoor-outdoor effect. The college boasts palettes of natural woods and stones to further connect with the nature of the university.

 We have always admired Woodsworths beauty and are glad that it is getting this prestigious recognition!
