Trico Changemakers Studio
Client Mount Royal University | Location Calgary, AB | Completion 2018
GEC worked with Mount Royal University’s facilities group and key stakeholders to repurpose underutilized office space into a social innovation hub: the Trico Changemakers Studio. The studio provides a space for students and faculty to develop partnerships with external partners.
A variety of spaces were developed to accommodate different types of partnerships and activities, from permanent offices, to drop-in spaces, and collaborative studios. These spaces will foster different modes of work by different organizations and individuals. The diversity of spaces encourages interaction and cross pollination between groups, as well as provides a revenue stream for the Studio.
