1969 – University Centre, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg

Architect: Number Ten Architectural Group




University Centre is the activity hub of the Fort Garry campus. It is the location of the Book Store, the Students’ Union offices, major campus food services, and a range of student services and commercial businesses. “The above grade facilities include dining space, offices and conference rooms, while the lounges, cafeteria, bookstore and open spaces for gathering were located below grade. University Centre serves as the central meeting point for all of the campus tunnels culminating at a two-storey multifunctional space referred to as a “campo”. This space was conceived as a main street that could act as a market, plaza or venue for speech and debate.” Winnipeg Architecture Foundation.
