The new gateway to the University creates a civic landmark for the campus along College Street and celebrates the transition between the city of Toronto and the historical spaces of King’s College Precinct. The gates are designed to frame the view down King’s College Road to King’s College Circle. The “concave” shape invites and draws visitors into the campus as opposed to repelling entry. Low walls provide seating areas to encourage people to gather and meet at an entry plaza to the University.
