UBC-New face on Campus

I saw this architecure esp the facade of this new building, when I was out biking with my family and friends over the last weekend.


It's a brand new building on campus, where $86.4-million was an investment from the Province of BC, slated to be opened sometime next month.


The facade-west facing-caught my eyes and it made me literally jump of my bike. When viewed from the main road, the east side, the building blended in with the other surrounding buildings. But the facade... Made a mental note to myself to return back to this place the following day.


On the following day in the evening, with some clouds in the sky, I returned once again and was treated to a coincidental surprise. The interior of the building was lite, and the group of architects, with their families, were celebrating-I suppose the unofficial-completion of their work. Nice!!!
