Limberlost Place: A New Kind of Institutional Building | George Brown College

A group of students from George Brown College’s Construction Engineering Technology program recently toured Limberlost Place (a collaboration between Moriyama Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects Inc.) to get a firsthand look at the leading-edge, sustainable materials at play and speak with the design and construction professionals bringing this innovative project to life. Carol Phillips, MTA’s Partner-in-Charge on the project, offers remarks on the design intent of the building and the ways in which she feels it has already shifted the standards of post-secondary architecture in Canada.

“When we designed Limberlost Place, we designed it with students in mind … One of the great opportunities we have here is to change culture – to have every individual who walks into this building see what a new kind of public institution can look like.”
– Carol Phillips, Moriyama Teshima Architects
