“The shared spaces ‘in between’ will encourage social interaction and innovative thinking”
For the Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CEIE), the challenge put to our design team was to create a building that signals a new era for engineering education. Our solution responds to a shift in pedagogy that asks to bring people together to foster collaboration, encourage active learning and accelerate innovation. It is a pedagogy best supported by dynamic, flexible environments that provide multiple paths to discovery.
The building will include a 480-seat interactive lecture hall, Technology Enhanced Advanced Learning rooms (TEAL), the Entrepreneurial Hatchery, design and fabrication studios, computer visualization rooms and an ‘Arena’ for student innovation clubs. The Centre will encourage informal, spontaneous interaction in non-programmed spaces, halls, stairways and lobbies. The programmed spaces will be standardized and flexible to allow for change. The new building is being conceived as a 100-year building and an energy target of 100 kw/m2 per year. It is targeting Toronto Green Standards Tier II.
The project is in association with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.
Completion Date: 2015
