Ryerson Student Learning Centre

Ryerson unveils gorgeous building at Yonge and Gould

Ryerson's new Student Learning Centre, a marquee building on the site of the old Sam the Record Man, is on the cusp of opening at Yonge and Gould. In the lead-up to the big reveal, media were invited to tour the recently completed structure.

A collaboration between Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto and Snøhetta of Oslo, the eight-storey building features sweeping open spaces, a floor that's designed to mimic a beach, and a host of technological features befitting a contemporary academic institution. Other features include a bridge to the Ryerson Library, three green roofs, and large entry plaza accessible by both students and visitors.
