Kongats Architects awarded 2012 Governor General’s Medal for Architecture for the University of Toronto Mississauga Terrene Donnelly Health Sciences Complex.
"A large institutional building is articulated and humanised by skillful massing and the inventive treatment of the facade. A cladding system of shimmering metal fins animates the stacked box arrangement of volumes, and gives the building a distinctive set-piece quality amid its campus neighbours. Interiors are luminous and civilised with ample natural light, and the sliding stacked volumes create terraces for encounter and engagement.The quality of detailing is exceptional and the sophisticated use of materials lifts the building into a class of its own."
