University of Manitoba Design Competition

PFS Studio teamed up with Perkins + Will and 1X1 Architecture for Visionary (re)Generation, an International Design Competition to create a vision and a conceptual campus plan for the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. We are thrilled that our submission, titled ‘Endaayang’, came in second place.

‘Endaayang’ creates a vibrant and dynamic community which emerges from, and merges with, the existing campus. A new large-scale regional river park retains existing trees, creates a buffer to neighbouring precincts, and offers a range of activities including a series of programmatic elements that incorporate local culture. The integrated open space network includes stormwater-conducting eco-corridors adjacent to new developments which are a crucial part of the connective strategy.
