ECUAD opens new $122.6M campus

September 6, 2017

Emily Carr University of Art + Design has officially opened its new $122.6M campus. The new purpose-built building will be the new home to the school, which has been based since 1980 on Vancouver’s Granville Island. The Vancouver Sun reports that roughly 2,300 faculty, staff and full-time students, as well as another 3,000 continuing-studies students, will have to revise their commuting plans in order to get to and from the new East Vancouver campus. The building’s exterior features vertical dashes of colour that are reportedly based on the paintings of the school’s namesake, Emily Carr. Vancouver Sun | Globe and Mail
