    Looks a bit like a tame version of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg.

    More information emerged today in an email to students and alumni:

    "Schulich hosted an official groundbreaking ceremony in late September to kick-off construction for our new, $50-million Graduate Study and Research Building. The 67,000-square-foot building, set to open in late 2017 and designed to be one of the most environmentally sustainable academic buildings in Canada, will create a new space for graduate students and will become the new home for a number of graduate studies programs...

    The new building will merge with and link to the existing, award-winning Seymour Schulich Building and will feature extensive outdoor courtyards, green roofs, radiant heating and operable windows with bird-friendly glazing. One of the first buildings in Canada to use the principles of Thermally Active Building Design (TABS), the building will maximize natural ventilation and solar energy harvesting while minimizing unwanted solar heat gain. A 27-metre-tall solar chimney will provide free cooling and ventilation in spring and fall as well as passive solar preheating of mechanical air ventilation in winter. The new building will be targeting LEED Gold Certification.

    First image is a bit reminiscent of a seriously pared down Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

    A professor of mine helped design the building and shared some floorpans and additional renders. He mentioned some interesting features that I thought I'd share:
    (1) The building will have LED lights in the solar chimney that will change colour at night
    (2) There will be a gym in the basement
    (3) There will be a "skywalk" over the social group space for hosting events (visible in one of the photos) Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 7.49.58 PM. Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 7.50.10 PM.
