Moffat Kinoshita Architects are happy to announce they will design Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology’s New Markham Campus to open September 2005. The new campus is to be located in the existing Allstate Building at the intersection of Highways 7 and 404, and will be home to 900 students in a variety of program areas, expanding to accommodate 3000 students by 2008. The new campus is an opportunity to increase the number of corporate partnerships, research opportunities and training initiatives at Canada’s largest college.
The building will be converted from office facilities into classrooms, labs, lecture halls, student common areas, and faculty offices and upgrades to the existing food service areas. The designers will accommodate both formal and informal learning spaces and the integration of technology throughout. The Seneca Project Team will be led by principals Ken Fukushima and Cathy Capes, both with extensive experience in educational environments.
