Site C - North University Hall

The north extension of University Hall for Science expansion is not recommended at this time. Although such an extension is within the spirit of the Erickson / Massey plan in its linearity, it moves the Science Facility and students even further from the atrium and access to the core facilities.

The addition of an east-west component at the north end of University Hall to form a 'quadrangle' as recommended by the Conceptual Planning Phase IV Report prepared by Watson Horton Ferrari is not recommended. The quadrangle tradition is not relevant or appropriate to the uniqueness of this place, the dimensions of the open space so created are too large to give any sense of enclosure and the dramatic drop in elevation from west to east further dispels any sense of quadrangle.

Proposed expansion plan from the Conceptual Planning Phase IV Report, 1990.
