KPU Wilson School of Design

State of the Art School of Design

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) officially opened its new $36-million Wilson School of Design on January 3 – a facility that was financed in part by Lululemon Athletica Inc. (Nasdaq:LULU) founder Chip Wilson and his family.

The yogawear giant contributed $8 million to the project while $24 million came from the B.C. government and KPU. KPU’s Richmond campus had been a site with only one building. The new Wilson School of Design building is beside that original structure and has a bridge to link it to the old building.

The 6000 sf facility includes:

  • New teaching studios.
  • Testing and prototyping labs where students can design, prototype, test and market product concepts.
  • A “usability lab.”
  • Gallery space for exhibitions of student work and curated shows related to innovation.
  • Student study space.
