13. University of Ottawa opens new academic facility

from Canadian Architect

From Nov. 9, 2012: The Faculty of Social Sciences Building at the University of Ottawa has opened. The 16-storey tower creates a new gateway and focal point for the downtown campus and provides 275,000 square feet of learning and student space. The building, designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects in joint venture with KWC Architects, features extensive classroom, student study and collaborative space on the lower five floors and connects with the renovated Vanier Hall via multi-level bridges that span a five-storey skylit atrium. The upper floors house seminar, office and research space for faculty, graduate students and staff. "Designed to efficiently occupy a marginal site at the edge of this dense urban campus, a new academic crossroads has been created," said Donald Schmitt, Principal with Diamond Schmitt Architects. more
