Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the University of Ottawa is a major contributor to the city’s economy, culture, and quality of life. Looking holistically at the university’s setting and facilities, the Campus Master Plan will guide the transformation of the campus environment, image and experience over the next 20 years. It represents a complete re-imagining of the University of Ottawa’s network of open spaces, buildings, and infrastructure. It promotes efficient land use through compact yet context-sensitive design, allowing for the creation of a seamlessly integrated mobility network punctuated by iconic open spaces to create a memorable campus. 

Jury Comment(s): 

"The campus master plan uses classic urban infill to create strong pedestrian connections that repair the campus and successfully overcome topographical challenges."
