    Looks good! I spent many long hours studying in the North Building and as an urbangeek even in those distant times dreamt "what would I put here" kinda thoughts. Gonna have to check out the campus again this year.

    dataBase page created. No other new renderings, sorry! Architect is Perkins + Will, who created the gorgeous Instructional Centre on the site recently. To be ready for classes fall 2014.

    5 May 2013: Had fun today checking out my old haunt





    I used to detest the North Building but now I've grown up...love it! Very retro hot.

    The vulgar mcmansions they're building across the street though...disgusting!

    Agreed on all accounts. During my short stint at UTM I had a few classes in the North building and hated it. Looking back, though, the shell has a lot of potential and is definitely architecturally significant. I was a bit sad to see most of it go, but the replacement addition looks fantastic!

    The McMansions in Mississauga Rd. have since become a point of reference that my friends and I use to define poor taste and the quantity over quality mentality that still prevails in the suburban built-form of 'Sauga.
