Quad Residence at York University by ARK Inc.

York University got a new student residence last year, Quad, designed by ARK Inc. I had the pleasure of photographing it from multiple vantage points.

The residence is actually two U-shaped buildings looking at each other. 

I captured a few aerials that really emphasize the shape of the building and its context in the university.

What makes the Quad so interesting is the artwork on the cladding of the building. At each corner, there is a different "drawing".

 
 

The courtyard, which are inside the two U's, are fantastic spaces for the students.

The interiors are all very colorful and provide great amenities for the students.
