OCAD U Unveils Another A+ Architectural Landmark

Long overshadowed by its flashy Alsop- and Gehry-designed neighbours, an OCAD U office building is getting a makeover

By Eric Mutrie

Top marks go to local firm Bortolotto for its artful reimagining of OCAD University’s Rosalie Sharp Pavilion, which will transform an administrative building at Dundas and McCaul into a multi-use student centre. The exterior’s intricate pattern, laser-cut into technologically responsive aluminum, is inspired by a map that traced student pedestrian traffic between Toronto’s cultural landmarks.

Check out the Bortolotto’s OCAD U project.
