January 9, 2019

Odeyto, Seneca’s new Indigenous centre at Newnham Campus, has been named one of the top 10 Canadian Architecture Projects of 2018 by Azure Magazine.The building has specifically been recognized for Best Implementation of Native Building Practices. Seneca reports that the building, named after the Anishnaabe word “Odeyto” – which translates to “the good journey” – will serve as the new home of FirstPeoples@Seneca and is also accessible to members of the broader community.  “We are delighted to see Odeyto’s architectural achievements being recognized in this way,” said Seneca Associate Dean Student Services and Indigenous Education Mark Solomon. “We are very proud of what we have achieved with the space, which has quickly become a daily destination for Indigenous teaching, learning and gathering. It has become a home for our Indigenous students.” Azure |Seneca (ON)
