The UBC Nest is a student-centered campus gathering place that provides students with a commons to eat, shop, study, and socialize. Dialog and B+H teamed up to design the facility, which aims to lead in all aspects of sustainability, from ecological to social. The intent was to create an agora; an arena where UBC's community could freely express and exchange ideas. It's an idea realized as a grand glass atrium and amphitheatre filled with natural light. Here the school's student population flows amongst architectural wood and concrete expressions, highlighted with brightly coloured accents.
