Levitt Goodman Architects selected to design new “Learning Commons”

12:30 - 14 December, 2009

York University has selected Levitt Goodman Architects to develop detailed designs for its competition-winning design for a 26,390 ft2  renovation of York University’s main library on its Keele campus. The “Learning Commons” will provide users with a mix of group study areas that will shift York University’s 40-year old Scott Library into a progressive learning environment.

The $2M renovation will be the first initiative on the campus specifically designed to reflect York’s pedagogical shift from a teacher-centered approach to active and collaborative learning. More images and description after the break.
