Campus Hub for the Faculty of Arts & Science (Sidney Smith Hall Redevelopment)

A circular graphic that highlights the domains of innovation associated to this project.

Early plans are underway to redevelop Sidney Smith as an iconic building and significant new open space that integrate accessibility, sustainability, and inclusivity. As part of this project, the Innovation Hub will organize a series of community ideation sessions to explore the student experience with Sidney Smith Hall and how the students and staff members envision this future Arts & Science landmark. Our research findings will be used as a resource during the design process for this redevelopment.
