A new facility in Waterloo serves triple-duty as a tech incubator and the hub for Wilfrid Laurier University's math department and business school.

 
Lazaridis Hall’s bold massing is bookended by wood-clad cylindrical volumes that house auditoriums.

 
A luminous atrium at the heart of the building is animated by the projecting forms of glass-clad learning labs and study rooms.


 
A 1,000-seat auditorium accommodates convocation and other large-scale events.

 
The building’s transparent ground floor addresses its prominent location on University Avenue.


 
 
A long-spanning, curvilinear skylight tops the central atrium, giving it an open, courtyard-like atmosphere. The structural glass and steel skylight, which covers a 140-foot by 70-foot area, includes a 40 percent frit to eliminate glare. The design achieves a maximum of glass surface supported by a minimal structure. Virtually all spaces in the building, including its 240 faculty offices, have windows to the exterior or to the atrium.
 

 
The main entry from University Avenue includes a sculptural stair and playful lighting.
