TORONTO, ON – York University’s widely acclaimed Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence was celebrated today during 2019 World Architecture Day festivities at Queen’s Park. At a reception hosted by the Ontario Association of Architects, eight examples of great architecture were chosen from a long list of Members of Provincial Parliament favourite buildings. In recognizing and nominating the Bergeron Centre, MPP Tom Rakocevic (Humber River-Black Creek) noted it is an exceptional example of modern architecture in his riding.
Designed by ZAS Architects + Interiors, the Bergeron Centre is the most recent architectural expansion to The Lassonde School of Engineering at York’s Keele Campus. Its bold and distinctive architecture reflects the pioneering engineering programs offered within. The Lassonde School is an academic venture that has quickly grown into a nimble, creative and collaborative community that champions equity, diversity and inclusion and is purpose-built with the Renaissance Engineer in mind. The internationally acclaimed, LEED Gold building has won 8 design awards and has been published by over 100 media organizations around the world including the New York Times, Wallpaper, Monocle, Architectural Digest, the Globe and Mail and others.
