George Brown University announced a winner in it’s design challenge for The Arbour, the province’s first tall wood, low carbon, institutional building. After a lengthy decision making process which shortlisted a number of promising designs from top-seated architectural firms, in the end, it was Moriyama and Teshima Architects and Acton Ostrey Architects collaboration and striking design that won out.
Serving as an educational and research hub, The Arbour will be home to Canada’s first Tall Wood Research Institute and will facilitate the exploration, ideas and research into low carbon, mass timber construction. Located at the south east corner of Queens Quay and Sherbourne, construction is set to begin in 2021. For more information, check it out here
