Sheridan’s Tapestry-Like Mural Celebrates Community

Designers weave together a nod to the school’s diverse populace

By Eric Mutrie

PLANT Architect Inc. jazzes up the facade of Sheridan College’s Rob Turner Building in Brampton. Developed in collaboration with the school’s design students, the two-storey treatment covers windows with angled, interwoven vinyl strips to seal in heat, while coordinating graphics printed on the inner side of the blinds depict a series of hands manipulating additional strands. The layered, tapestry-like visual speaks to diversity and working together – a nod to the building’s role as the home of Sheridan’s Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies.
