Highland Hall (UTSC) - Current Project
Perkins + Will
The concept for Highland takes inspiration from UTSC’s native topography and the dramatic qualities of John Andrew’s original campus architecture to create a bold new presence along Military Trail, and to define a spatial gateway to The South Campus.
The design will transform R-Wing, the site of the former campus gymnasium, into a new locus of learning, research and social activity. A series of public space connections will weave through the design, integrating new and renovated spaces into a seamless whole while offering new accessible routes through the campus. The most significant of these spaces, “the Ravine”, will connect the various levels of academic and student activity, supporting the formation of new communities among the building’s diverse occupants.
