Ontario Wood WORKS! is pleased to announce the release of our newest case study on Laurentian University’s McEwen School of Architecture. Located in Sudbury, Ontario, Laurentian University’s McEwen School of Architecture is the first new school of architecture building to be built in Canada in 40 years. Its mandate is to provide an integrated, uniquely focused education to Indigenous, Anglophone, and Francophone students. It is the only school of architecture outside of Québec to offer French-language studio courses, and the first to include offices for Indigenous Elders, who play a central role in the school. Learn more about this innovative, mass timber building whose exposed timber structure introduces students to engineered wood products, showcases a modern design solution using glulam and CLT, and inspires students to consider new ways of building with wood.
