With almost 200 years of architectural history, the University of Toronto’s St George Campus is one of the most unique and remarkable architectural collections in Canada. Join us on this walk as we explore some of its contemporary gems – from monumental concrete additions to context sensitive renovations, as well as the numerous open spaces that tie the campus together. Highlights include Sir Norman Foster’s Leslie Dan Pharmacy Building, the Brutalist classic Robarts Library and the recently completed Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport.
