    Regional Dean South Okanagan Similkameen
    Okanagan College
  • Teresa Syrnyk, Architect AIBC, BA, BArch

    Associate Director Sustainability Operations
    University of British Columbia – Okanagan Campus

Norma Rose Point School

This excellent video was created for Norma Rose Point School in collaboration with Digital Cyclops and Fielding Nair International.

Thinkspace was fortunate to be involved in the intensive collaboration with senior education and planning staff at the Vancouver School Board, including conceptual planning input and advice from the renowned firm of Fielding & Nair International. The result is a school environment that is quite far along the 21st Century school transformation scale.
