University of Manitoba ARTlab receives 2016 Governor General's Medal in Architecture

The ARTlab program consists of large spaces for the School of Art to complement the small studio spaces within the adjacent Taché Hall, a repurposed 1911 student residence. The volume of the ARTlab interlocks with Taché Hall, which reinforces the two buildings as an integrated arts facility and maximizes north daylight in the studio spaces. Facilitating a critical urban connection to the business school to the south, the north wing of the ARTlab is raised one storey above grade. The covered area below forms the entrance to the ARTlab and a generous covered outdoor space for school and gallery events.

But, the price tag for net zero can be too high for school budgets. Fortunately, a library project at Sacred Heart School in northern California illustrates that it is possible to deliver a net zero energy building within a conventional budget while teaching kids about the value of conserving resources.
