The Castell Building, aka the former Central Library, now holds an active street-level research hub for the University of Calgary’s School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape. Called the City Building Design Lab, the school’s downtown space at the edge of East Village acts as a community connector and catalyst for civic transformation.
The CBDLab helps students connect with the building industry as they explore how innovations in design, construction and operational management can make cities more resilient, equitable, vibrant, prosperous and healthy. It also gives the community opportunities to experience and participate in school programming.
