The article outlines all eight winners and provides an overview of the building’s layout.

The architects behind the design, Zeidler and Snøhetta, were honoured for their work. The building is expected to change the face of Yonge Street and will create more student space.

Construction is set to begin this semester, with a projected completion date of Winter 2014. For more information about the building and updates on the project, visit the Ryerson Builds website.

Alcuin Society Awards

The Alcuin Society recently hosted its awards for excellence in Canadian book design. The library currently has a set of the trade books on loan. We have created two displays of the materials: one across from the Reference Desk on the second floor, and a second display on the fourth floor near Special Collections.
