Our Vancouver office had the pleasure of walking through the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus to view the unique, creative, and historical architecture.
We visited 12 buildings and a few other interesting spots on the campus. Buildings of particular interest were the AMS Student Nest, which was designed to look like a bird’s nest with an egg shape of theatre space in the centre. Brock Commons Student Residence was also distinctive as it is the tallest wood building in all of Canada.
UBC’s long history can be observed through the architecture of its early 1900s Iona Building, designed in the Tudor Gothic style. The Chemistry Building is another building constructed in the early 1990s in a similar masonry style.
The team thoroughly enjoyed learning all about UBC’s iconic architecture and its fascinating history.
