A New Addition to the Campus Map
Carleton’s newest—and greenest— building overlooks the canal
The distinctive lines and riverside location of the Canadian War Museum make it one of Ottawa’s most exciting architectural attractions. Now the stylized bunker on the riverbank has a canal-side sibling at Carleton University.
That’s because the same architectural firms that teamed up for the museum project are behind two new buildings on campus, one of them nudging close to Hartwell Locks on the Rideau Canal.
The six-storey, 100,000-square-foot Canal Building will house a new Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering as well as aerospace and sustainable engineering programs.
The firms Moriyama and Teshima Architects and GRC Architects developed plans for the building, which extends northwest from the Mackenzie Building, squaring the incomplete quad formed by Mackenzie, the Unicentre and Architecture buildings.
