Brutalism Andrews Building, Scarborough College (today University of Toronto)

The Andrews Building forms the cornerstone for the then newly established first satellite campus of the University of Toronto. With all the main pathways on the inside, its façade design and its meandering footprint the building responds exceptionally to the climatic and topographical conditions. Divided into two wings, the building is over 1km long but is still only part of the original plan.
