DBHSC World Architecture Award

The David Braley Health Sciences Centre, located in downtown Hamilton, received a World Architecture Award in 2017.  The building which is home to the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine’s Department of Family Medicine and the City’s Public Health Services, was designed to reflect the natural landscape of Hamilton and includes physical features that represent the City’s many waterfalls.  The building was recognized for its lecture theatres with generous windows, its terraces, and the creative use of stone, wood and planting features throughout.
