Science Research Building (UTSC) - Past Project
Moriyama and Teshima Architects
The Science Research Building houses six plant biology faculty and their laboratories in an open concept building design. The building features a microscopy suite, tissue culture facility, a darkroom, radioisotopes labs, a plant growth facility, coldrooms, an NMR facility and conference and seminar rooms. The open-concept design facilitates interactions amongst students and faculty, fostering collaborative relationships and technology transfer.
The Science Research Building at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus defines the school’s inter-and multi-disciplinary approach to scientific education, bringing together in research ‘clusters’ toxicologists, micro biologists, environmental chemists, plant cell biologists and developmental psychologists.
Overlooking the adjacent ravine, the building is an extension of the original iconic John Andrews Science Wing, respecting the UTSC master plan, matching existing built patterns, and linking old and new through interior pedestrian streets.
