The Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research created an international buzz in the architectural community after receiving a prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects’ International Award, recognizing high architectural standards and contribution to the local environment. Located at the heart of the medical and health sciences district in the city of Toronto, this 2005 addition to the University of Toronto, was designed by Behnisch, Behnisch and Partner of Stuttgart, Germany, in collaboration with architectsAlliance of Toronto.
This research building sets a standard for the future of research facility design, and perhaps other medical buildings as well, as medical treatments involving multidisciplinary associations become increasingly important, both in research and clinical settings.
