Meet the Latest Addition to U of T’s Mississauga Campus

The school’s latest building is a lesson in Architecture 101

By Eric Mutrie

Perkins+Will’s latest assignment: to create a vibrant new landmark for the University of Toronto’s once-prosaic Mississauga campus. Their design cantilevers two rectangular volumes above a wide, concrete-clad band. The glazed terra cotta-covered wings add administrative and academic space for various departments. A dramatic glass atrium sits between them with a grand staircase that acts as both student lounge space and an informal event venue; its extra-wide treads double as benches.
