The design of the Sprott School of Business embodies the vision of an innovative, creative and socially responsible school. The first floor is articulated around a three-story atrium illuminated by skylights on the roof. The curved design of the building contrasts with the rectangular geometry of the existing traditional buildings. This project required a high degree of 3D technical precision given the curved parts of the façade (curved mullions and curved glass). The project obtained the Green Globe environmental certification for buildings.
