As more students come to high school and higher education eager to make, hack, prototype and launch companies, more and more “innovation” centers that break down silos and push multi-disciplinary learning are emerging. Buffalo Business First recently profiled CannonDesign’s work with such learning centers in a new piece focused on this trend.
The piece touches on CannonDesign’s work with the following institutions:
At the University of Utah, Lassonde Studios merges 400 residences with a 20,000 sf entrepreneurial “garage” where students can live, learn and launch companies.
At York University in London, Ont. Canada, the new Student Centre offers three levels. The first is focused on the “body” with health and wellness offerings, the middle floor offers space for student clubs and focuses on the “mind” and the top floor is a large multi-faith space focused on the “soul.”
The University at Buffalo has merged its health research efforts with Kaleida Health’s Gates Vascular Institute in an innovative building in downtown Buffalo.
