KPMB wins 2010 AIA Institute Honor Award for Ryerson University Master Plan
January 15, 2010
KPMB Architects and Daoust Lestage inc. in association with Greenberg Consultants Inc. and IBI Group have been awarded the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2010 Institute Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design for the Ryerson University Master Plan.

Jury Comments:

Looking forward to Ryerson’s identity as a university within the urban setting of a growing Toronto downtown, this master plan strives to create a recognizable presence and community connection oriented to comfortable, secure pedestrian use and a commitment to design excellence as the university grows over time. With its thoughtful connection to the area transportation system and extensive integration with the city, this plan is a decidedly 21st Century response to co- development, including funding and potential integrations of uses within a tight timeframe. It has an interesting, creative use of verticality while giving the city clearly articulated and much needed open space.
