Research facility claims people’s choice award

The Faculty of Science’s newest research facility is the winner of the Ontario Association of Architects 2020 people’s choice award.

The Essex Centre of Research (Essex CORe) won the association’s design excellence award in September and beat out competitors across Ontario, as well as in Alberta and the United States, for the people’s choice award.

The building’s designers, Hariri Pontarini Architects, said they were inspired to merge and engage the dense work of science within the welcoming, collegial, and natural environment of the University of Windsor.

The award was announced Oct. 1 at the virtual OAA Celebration of Excellence. The ceremony is available on Youtube.
