C.K. Choi Building

Located on the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus, the C. K. Choi Building is home to the Institute for Asian Research, the Institute for European Studies and the Pacific Affairs journal. Designed by Matsuzaki Wright Architects, the building and adjoining plaza are replete with architectural symbols of Asian culture and the IAR’s work inside.

The C. K. Choi Building was inaugurated in 1996 and immediately recognized as a benchmark in sustainable design, earning the Building Owners and Managers Association of BC’s EARTH Award in 1996 and the Lieutenant Governor Innovation Award of Excellence in 1998.
