The University of Toronto recently completed construction of a new addition to its School of Architecture. The top floor of the new Daniels Building facility features an expansive 16,000-square-foot open space designed to function as a studio and study hall for the students. The space features no interior walls or structural columns.
Towering above the massive space is a very contemporary drywall ceiling designed to replicate wings that reach eastward and westward away from the north-facing glass curtain wall. Hyperbolic paraboloid in shape, four angled drywall ceiling slabs gently twist from one side of the space to the other.
