Who Builds the City? Symposium

Keynote Address by President Levy

Friday, November 7, 2014 from 6-8 pm

Glenn Gould Studio 

Led by President Sheldon Levy, Ryerson University, located in the heart of downtown Toronto, has spent the last decade considering and acting on the role of the University as City-Builder. During President Levy’s tenure, the University has carried out a number of significant projects that underscore the ability of a major institution to impact the form and vitality of its surroundings. The Mattamy Athletic Centre, housed in historic Maple Leaf Gardens, points to the importance of maintaining our heritage as a living and evolving asset; the Ryerson Image Centre positions the University as a major force in the cultural scene in the city; and the new Student Learning Centre, currently under construction, brings first-rate architecture to the revitalization of Yonge Street. (Urban Toronto, 2014) Now, as Dr. Levy enters his last year as President, this symposium looks to re-consider the possibilities for Universities and other institutions to play a significant critical role in guiding the construction of our urban environments.
