Scope and Content

This project series documents an addition and renovations to Woodsworth College at the University of Toronto from 1986-1991. The office identified the project number as 18603.

Before this work, the existing property consisted of four Victorian houses: the main College building at 119 St. George Street that had a large drill hall connected to the back, a house next to the drill hall, the Centre for Industrial Relations located at 121 St. Georges Street, and the Media Centre located at 123 St. Georges Street. This project consisted of interior renovations to the houses and the addition of an L-shaped building at the back of the property that connected to the drill hall and turned at the corner of the property towards the Media Centre house. This created a central courtyard in the centre of the property, between all the buildings. The new building was two storeys with an arcade toward the courtyard, a red brick facade and sheet metal roofing. This housed audio-visual rooms, editing rooms, offices and a workroom in the basement, classrooms and meeting rooms on the ground floor, and faculty offices, lounges and administrative areas on the second floor. A new entry tower and hall were constructed for the main College building. This building consisted of mechanical and electrical rooms in the basement, student spaces and administrative offices on the ground floor, and administrative offices and meeting rooms on the second and third floors. Barton Myers Associates worked as the consulting architects on this project.

The project is recorded through drawings and photographic materials dating from 1986-1991. The drawings include sketches, drawings for the project model, sections, floor and site plans, elevations, details, axonometric drawings, perspectives, and structural drawings. There are a large number of detail drawings for furnishings and architectural elements. The photographic materials consist of aerial views and photographs of the finished project.
