The Jury commented on the School of Business: “Post-secondary institutions continue to lead the way in the implementation of advanced sustainable design practice. This academic research and classroom building incorporates climate-adapted design and advanced technology while also supporting occupant wellbeing and forging a strong connection to the surrounding campus. The solar chimney and the twist in plan to optimize building orientation were notable features of the design.”
