Zeidler Partnership, Snohetta Team up on Toronto’s Ryerson Student Learning Center

26 March, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Zeidler Partnership Architects and Snohetta are collaborating on a new student learning Center for Ryerson University in Toronto. Designed to give an urban edge to the campus’s downtown location, the 155,460 sq.-ft. building features a retail front along Yonge Street and a separate public plaza and entry.



A frit pattern adorning the building’s lightweight glass façade will create various lighting qualities within the interior, where each level will have its own character. Known as the “Beach,” the sixth floor will feature terraced seating, ramps, and casual study areas, while the “Forest” level above is outfitted with a wall of study rooms divided into quadrants. The third level is dedicated to technology.



Ryerson will target LEED Silver certification through sustainable elements such as a rainwater cistern for non-potable water usage, building materials featuring recycled content and low VOCs, and a green roof.

Completion is scheduled for the end of this year.
