Design + Build

Direct, hands-on experience in design and construction is an extraordinary learning opportunity for young designers. We are committed to providing these possibilities through various design-build options open to architecture, landscape architecture, and environmental design students. The design build counts toward your degree as elective credits.

Gambier Island, 2015-present

Since 2015, our students have collaborated with Camp Fircom, a 125-acre camp and retreat centre on Gambier Island, just outside of Vancouver in Howe Sound. Completely off the grid, Camp Fircom offers a rich and challenging environment for learning about sustainable design and construction practices. More can be found on the Design + Build blog.
