The incredible brutalist architecture of the Andrews Building has led to many appearances in major films, television shows and music videos, including the recent Academy Awards Best Picture winner ‘The Shape of Water,’ sci-fi classic ‘Total Recall’, and The Weeknd’s latest music video ‘Secrets’. Architect John Andrews designed the building 10 years before he created the CN Tower. The building was designed with community and connectedness in mind, featuring a ‘town centre’ (the Meeting Place) and two main ‘neighbourhoods’ (the Humanities Wing and Science Wing).
