This marks the first time since 1988 that a Canadian building has won the award.

Designed by Cibinel Architects Ltd + Batteriid Architects, the Active Living Centre was noted by the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) as a facility that exemplifies excellence in a number of critical areas, including architectural design, functionality, and how well the facility meets its intended purpose.

George Cibinel, the project’s Design Director, describes the facility’s importance to the campus and its relationship to the community, “the project is located at the corner of University Crescent and Dafoe Road, across from the campus Welcome Centre, which is an important pedestrian entrance to the campus for people arriving by car or by bus. The mandate of the University was to take this opportunity to create a dynamic and vibrant facility that would introduce students, faculty and staff to recreation as a healthy lifestyle and to create a place where they would love to stay”.
