New Woodsworth Academic Building Receives Award of Merit

January 18, 2022

Kongats Architects recognized for their innovative concept by Canadian Architect Magazine

Woodsworth College is thrilled to announce that our new Academic Building has received an Award of Merit from Canadian Architect Magazine. The citation below explains the premise upon which the building was designed.

"A driving concept shaping The New Academic Building at Woodsworth College is the continuation and reimagining of the traditional cloister formation provided by the 1992 wing. Extending and ‘pulling’ the cloister vertically through the new building organizes the spaces within, creating a multi-level arcade with ‘courtyards’ for interacting, studying, and collaborating. Circulation is exposed, allowing Woodsworth students, faculty, and staff to see and be seen, as they are connected to the city and to each other."
