The University of Toronto’s Multifaith Centre

When Moriyama & Teshima Architects were commissioned to design a multifaith space within the existing Koffler Centre at the University of Toronto, they were given what might have been an impossible brief. While keeping to the University’s secular mandate, they were to create a refuge and place of worship which was programmatically and liturgically flexible enough to accommodate all spiritualities; celebrating the creeds of the roughly 30 religious organisations on campus without bias, and providing a forum for debate.
