Design Quarterly Dives Into Innovative Details of New Vancouver Campus
11.03.17

At the front and center of Design Quarterly this month is the progressive learning environment created at the Adler University’s new Vancouver campus.

“Dedicated to social justice and graduating socially responsible practitioners, Adler University is not a typical school,” the article said. “So naturally, it follows that its new Vancouver campus could not be a typical learning environment. The progressive university needed an equally innovative environment that would reflect its unique curriculum.”

Located at 520 Seymour Street, the colourful five-storey, 30,500-square-foot learning hub reflects the vibrancy of its faculty, staff, alumni and graduate students. The education centre is a significant upgrade from Adler University Vancouver’s former home at 1090 West Georgia Street – a space it had outgrown since its 2007 move-in.

The campus officially opened its doors at a May 2017 grand opening ceremony.
