The Department of Computer
Science is located at The Centre for Computing and Engineering - 245
Church Street. Moriyama & Teshima designed the new Centre for Computing
and Engineering on the urban campus of Ryerson University in the heart
of downtown Toronto, Canada. The building features a sculptural treatment
of the Church Street facade that dramatically changes throughout the
day as the sun and ambient light varies. At times reflective and at
time transparent, the building is a distinctive symbol of Ryerson.
The facility brings together a number of departments including Aerospace,
Civil Engineering, Computing Science and Electrical and Computing Engineering.
Design started in February 2002 and the facility opened to students
in the fall term of 2004.

Dr. Alexander Ferworn started with the idea to put cameras on rescue dogs who search rubble, which led to attaching robots to the dogs for even better rubble exploration. Nobody took the dog's perspective seriously until Ferworn. He looked at the current process, reflected on his experiences searching for people in rubble and turned the idea on its head by adding to what was acknowledged to be the best system available - the dog's nose.
