UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences Building Wins Prestigious Award

Thanks to Design and Lifestyle magazine, Wallpaper, Vancouver’s very own UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences Building has bestowed their position of ‘Best Lab’ for 2013.

A few key phrases of the buildings description that stuck out when Wallpaper chose UBC for this award were:

  • pays hommage to the debt science owes to nature
  • instantly engaging
  • striking
  • crowd-pleasing piece of controlled drama

The building opened just last fall, on September 18, 2012. It was designed by Montreal’s Saucier + Perrotte Architectes and Vancouver’s Highes Condon Marier Architects. The building itself is a quarter-million square feet, and has been recognized with a Canadian Architect Award of Excellence in 2012.

Way to go UBC!
