Faculty of Extension, University of Albert

Dec 28, 2017

The Renovation and Renewal for the University of Alberta’s Faculty of extension provided a collaborative hub that merged collective and indigenous learning spaces. Located in Edmonton’s Enterprise Square, this updated learning center is the main learning place for thousands of continuing education students each year, and this collaborative space contributes to downtown revitalization.

This 25,000-square-foot former office space evolved into a world-class teaching environment through a rigorous design process which included research, precedent studies, and benchmarking. The goal was to construct a light-filled, educational environment with focused study areas and dedicated learning space. Contrasting neutral tones with elements of color made this space feel and look upbeat and vibrant.

This space included an indigenous learning space to enable the Faculty to offer programming grounded in ceremony, and is respectful of indigenous knowledge. In addition to the indigenous gathering space, this landmark project included open-concept work and seating spaces in various configurations which created dynamic flexible seating, allowing collaboration between multidisciplinary students and supported diverse learning types.
