More Information

Also known as the Plant Science Building, this contemporary building was designed to relate to a series of existing faculty buildings surrounding the site. The materials used in the interior, including quarry tile, natural cedar and brick, were chosen for the earthy quality that relates well with the studies of the faculty.

This structure is now part of an agricultural complex that occupies a generous section of Dafoe Road between University Crescent and MacLean Crescent. The complex includes original campus buildings as well as a 1996 addition at the corner of Dafoe Road and Service Street 3S.
