This mixed-use building at the heart of campus creates a dynamic new centre for students and faculty. It is a hub of student activity, with a library, cafe, classrooms, study areas and administrative spaces. A four-storey living wall of about 1,300 plants adds to its health-promoting atmosphere, and its design is inspired by the Thompson River Valley’s indigenous peoples.
