Emily Carr University of Art + Design

The design of the new campus for the Emily Carr University of Art + Design was unveiled in April 2017. Now it’s completed, and occupied. There’s a single building at the end of 1st Avenue, parallel with Great Northern Way. The render of the project suggested that it would be a predominantly off-white building, but fortunately in reality there are some splashes of colour to liven things up, and the glazing pattern was made more interesting.

Budgeted at $134 million the design is by Diamond Schmitt Architects from Toronto (working with Vancouver-based Chernoff Thompson Architects).

    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.
