A Concrete Vision: Brutalist Architecture at York University

Osgoode Hall Law School

Osgoode Hall Law School is the home of Canada's oldest law school. The law school started in its downtown location during the 1820s. It relocated to York University campus in the mid-1960s due to space restrictions at the downtown location and a new requirement in the 1960s that law schools affiliate with universities.
In 1968 the School became a faculty of the university. The building was designed by the Toronto architectural design firm, Marani, Routhwaite and Dick and was completed in 1969. Five stories tall, it is a low-rise building like many other buildings on campus. The building includes Brutalist elements such as precast concrete. It also has a flat roofline and brick cladding.
