Groundbreaking for new science building at U of T Scarborough


Ceremony at 1:00 to 3:00 pm

The University of Toronto Scarborough is creating a leading-edge science facility that will provide vibrant, collaborative space for interdisciplinary teaching and research in physical and life sciences.

The 5,277 square metre science building will house 16 laboratories and associated support areas; offices for faculty as well as work space for research assistants, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students; meeting rooms; lounges and a 250-seat lecture theatre. It will be designed with floor-specific themes, including environmental chemistry, plant and microbial molecular biology and developmental/cognitive psychology.

Each floor will foster a highly-integrated approach to research. With shared common space, opportunities for academic and social discourse between researchers will enhance and encourage interdisciplinary study.

The new building will extend from the original Science Wing and have a view over the Highland Creek Ravine. It will be the sixth new facility added at U of T Scarborough in four years.

The state-of-the-art building, designed by Moriyama & Teshima Architects, in association with Watson MacEwen Architects, is scheduled to open in spring 2008.

Ceremony to take place in the Arts & Administration Building foyer.
