Archidose featured Teeple's (and IBI-HBEW's) Langara College Library as the weekly pick. This occasions a post then!

This LEED Gold building has picked 2005 Holcim Award, 2005 Canadian Architect Award of Excellence, and SAB 2008 Award. To read about its green feature follow this link to the SAB article.


More images can be found in Archidose's post as well as on the Langara website:

and here (design and construction);

and the Canadian Architect article.


Speaking of Teeple and Langara - Teeple is one of the sponsors of Langara's artist-in-residence Kristina Lee Podesva's Vehicle Project. If you are into shipping containers for living, head on over to the main entrance to Langara College where her artwork will be on display Monday - Thursday 4-8pm starting tomorrow until April 21st.

I have tagged the library on the map (in sidebar to the right) if anyone is interested in locating it.

the library is nice, but the container art isn't great. it's only a novelty for those who haven't seen other executions, which are much better.
