UCalgary’s City Building Design Lab aims to revitalize downtown

May 1, 2019

The University of Calgary’s School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape has officially opened the City Building Design Lab. The Lab received a $1.5M investment from the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation, which will support programming at the downtown location over five years. “[S]tudents here will have direct access to industry … only a few blocks away from most of the major firms where they’ll be working,” said School Dean John Brown. Brown added that the school is arriving downtown at a time when the city is struggling economically and eager to diversify the local economy, which will provide ample opportunities for students to get involved. UCalgary | Calgary Herald (AB)
