York University Educational Pavilion / Bus Shelter, Toronto, ON


Canada’s third largest university is known for its brutalist-modernist architecture and innovative programs, making the eye-catching colour, sleek geometric look and switchblade layout of this project very appropriate. Students collaborated on the design, which packs a whole lot of ‘wow’ into its relatively small footprint.

One half of the building is a robotics lab used for experimentation and teaching in York’s highly regarded Vision, Graphics and Robotics program. The other half is a transit shelter.

The pavilion is equipped with Wi-Fi, space-saving lab work surfaces that can be tucked away when not in use, and a scatter-pattern of potlights that resemble stars at night. Multi-use and relocatable, the building is a great example of design ingenuity and modular flexibility.
