This nighttime shot of the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, the interdisciplinary research facility on College Street, captures the cutting-edge design of Behnisch, Behnisch & Partner and architectsAlliance.

It’s just one of the startling Tom Arban photographs included in University of Toronto: The Campus Guide (Princeton Architectural Press, 2009). Author Larry Wayne Richards, a professor of architecture and former dean of U of T’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, provides an architectural overview of the style, use and history of buildings on all three University of Toronto campuses.

Richards outlines nine walks that invite you to explore the historical structures on St. George Campus, the buildings in the Medical and Health Sciences District, the architecture on the east and west campuses, and more. University of Toronto: The Campus Guide is available at U of T Bookstore.
