James Bartleman Archives & Library Materials Centre
On the edge of Tallwood Forest at the intersection of two arterial roads (Woodroffe and Tallwood Drive) the new City Archives was designed to create a public courtyard linking to a future transit station.
This new facility makes significant connections between the adjacent neighbourhood, the forest and the future transit station. It provides tangible community benefits and includes striking architectural character to a growing part of the city on a major community transit and transportation corridor.
