Emily Carr University of Art + Design

Emily Carr

The Urban Design Panel get to see the design of the proposed new campus for the Emily Carr University of Art + Design next week. Here’s a shot of the north face of the building model; it looks like there will be just one building that will be located on 1st Avenue off Great Northern Way. The render of the project, just published on the city’s website, suggests that there’s not a lot of colour missing from the model: it really is proposed to be an off-white building.

Budgeted at $134 million the design is by Diamond Schmitt Architects from Toronto (working with Vancouver-based Chernoff Thompson Architects). Another member of the Applied Arts Team who won the bid to build the project is EllisDon, the contractor building another Toronto-designed Public-Private Partnership project, the VGH mental health facility named for Joe & Rosalie Segal, who made a significant donation to get it built.

    Is this the look or the feel of a new building for a cutting edge Arts and Design University in Canada or a bland office building with a bit of detail frosting on the side? Lets hope there is some experiential nuances inside.
