Athabasca University Academic Research Centre
This research centre is the hub for all research activity at Athabasca University, serving as a resource and providing support for basic and applied research within the university.
This building hosts all of Athabasca University's Academic Centres, the University Collections Centres, and a number of meeting and collaborative spaces. Wood was used throughout the project to achieve maximum sustainability, without sacrificing any of the aesthetics. Spruce Pine Glulam beams help create clerestories and tall window walls, allowing as much natural light into the building as possible and blending it seamlessly into the surrounding forest canopy.
