Buildings

While students in both the BID and MDes programs will find themselves in all parts of Carleton University’s campus, the Industrial Design programs primarily take place in Mackenzie Building, Azrieli Pavilion, and the Canal Building.

Mackenzie Building (ME)

Named after Chalmers Jack Mackenzie, the Mackenzie building is the home of the Industrial Design program.  Many undergraduate classes take place here, in addition to housing the program’s top ranked laboratories.  The building also houses 24/7 studio space for students in the BID program.  Faculty offices and administration are located on the third floor.

Azrieli Pavillion (AP)

The David J. Azrieli Pavilion opened in 2002 and is one of the newer buildings on campus.  Situated on the quad in between Tory Building and Dunton Tower, the pavilion overlooks the Rideau Canal.

MDes students have access to a naturally-lit 1100 square-foot studio located in Azrieli Pavillion room 430.

Canal Building (CB)

The Canal Building was  designed to meet a high level of sustainability, by incorporating a green roof, and sustainable design/construction practices. The building houses 24/7 studio space for students in the BID program.
