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
