Using the same techniques as a passive house, a new university building in Toronto, Canada will be one of the most sustainable in the world. York University awarded architecture firm Perkins+Will with their design that will meet LEED certification. The building aims to have a warming appeal and will generate as much energy as it uses.

The new building, which will host the School of Continuing Studies, will be located at the Keele campus. Perkins+Will was selected after the university fielded many designs and won the competition stage featuring three finalists. Other finalists were HOK and Gow Hastings Architects.
