Osgoode HallOsgoode Hall is embarking on a $1.8 million project to make its front entrance accessible to the disabled. It’s no easy task to add a wheelchair ramp to a historic building without messing up the design of the original structure. According to an article in the Toronto Star, the architects have struggled with the challenge, and have come up with a removable ramp made of the same limestone as the building itself.

Construction begins in April and should be finished by the end of 2008.
