Lassonde to create Gregory H. Woods Fellowship in Innovative Design

Greg Woods was a visionary. A brilliant architect and a true gentleman. Greg was a rare breed. A man of detail who always saw the big picture.

He was truly a Renaissance Man.

The Lassonde School of Engineering is the home of the Renaissance Engineer. We couldn’t have picked a better man for the task of designing a home for our students. And not just any building.

Greg sketched out the vision. “The Cloud”. He transformed that vision into a magnificent design in form and function. It’s now up to us make his dream and his design, a reality for our students.

At Lassonde, we want to make sure Greg continues to inspire. In recognition of his contribution to fulfilling our dream, we are establishing the Gregory H. Woods Fellowship in Innovative Design.

Greg’s vision won’t just live on in our new home. It will now live on in the minds and the dreams of a new generation of students, who like Greg will push boundaries and push the reset button on our assumptions.

The announcement was made yesterday at the Tribute to Gregory H. Woods at OCAD University.

We’ll be revealing more information about the fellowship in the coming months.

You were a visionary and an idol of design, forever you will be missed,, as a professor, friend and role model.. " But if one thing is for certain, Design will never be fully design, without you sir !
I had the pleasure of seeing Greg's early thoughts on this project and will look forward to seeing it completed. Greg was my cousin, but we shared a love for innovated functional design.
