UBCO Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies Feasibility Study

Client: University of British Columbia - Okanagan Campus
Location: Kelowna, BC

Thinkspace has completed the investigation of the feasibility of the construction of a multi-purpose facility for the UBCO Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, a flexible space that would incorporate elements such as: digital media facilities, a contemporary art/media/performance commons, broadcasting/film/sculpture production studios, and a flexible learning commons for instruction and informal interaction among students, faculty and staff. Two options were explored during the Preliminary Concepts stage. One option was identified as the preferred and selected for further development in the Feasibility Report. The Feasibility Report served to ‘test’ the selected option in terms of context, materials, adjacencies, functionality, buildability and cost.
