New Vancouver campus opens for Emily Carr University


VANCOUVER —

The Emily Carr University of Art + Design unveiled a new Vancouver campus on September 5, 2017. Relocated from its former home on Granville Island, the school now calls home a purpose-built facility designed by Canada’s Diamond Schmitt Architects. Our sister publication, Canadian Architect, has the full story:

This 26,700-square-metre (290,000 sf) landmark building anchors the regeneration of an industrial zone and is a catalyst for its redevelopment and connection with the city. To engage the community of this emerging cultural and academic precinct, the campus has an open and accessible design that welcomes the public into the creative processes on display.
