The Faculty of Science’s newest research facility is the winner of the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) 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.

Hariri Pontarini Architects, the visionaries behind Essex CORe, said they were inspired by the design 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 on October 1, 2020 at the virtual OAA Celebration of excellence.  The award ceremony is available on Youtube.
