The Nicol Building is designed to be a vivid expression of the culture at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University. The inviting curved form, transparent base, and open, dynamic spaces create an embrace that reaches out to campus life on all sides. Packed around a three-storey hive in a skylit atrium, flexible classrooms, glass seminar rooms, and break-out spaces activate and energize the space. The design translates the School’s ambition to be inclusive and to nurture and inspire its community. BubbleDeck void form technology reduces concrete use in this 4.5 Green Globes design.
