Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Campus Redevelopment Project
Vancouver, British Columbia
In Association with: B+H Architects
Client: Emily Carr University of Art + Design
Founded as the Vancouver School of Art in 1925, Emily Carr is the only specialized post-secondary institution in British Columbia offering programs in Fine Arts, Media Arts and Design exclusively. Emily Carr is one of only four such institutions in Canada, and is consistently recognized nationally and internationally for the excellence of its faculty, students and alumni.
The new facilities for Emily Carr University will further B.C.’s reputation as a destination for world-class post- secondary education, by allowing the university to enhance the education and skills training in media, design and art programs in ways that have not been possible due to site constraints of the current Granville Island campus.
Zeidler Partnership Architects in association with B + H were one of the three proponents chosen in Fall 2013 to submit a proposal.
