Research Lab on Urban Landscapes and Architecture

Design of a University Residence Building

International Student Competition for the Design of a University Residence Building
Location:  Toronto, Canada

The site is located on the campus of Ryerson University. The residence building will  provide housing and related facilities for a representative cross section of the University’s population, including students, faculty, administrative staff, and visiting scholars. The site and competition brief call for creative thinking in terms of the conception of affordable, high-rise accommodation for university campuses situated in dense, inner-city conditions.

Things to consider

  • Has the idea of the university changed over time?
  • Has the residence changed in relation to the university?
  • Can the design of the residence enhance students’ learning experience?
  • Can it help build the surrounding community?
  • Can a student residence act as a catalyst for positive change and renewal of the environment?

Deadline: Before December 28 2009
