This four-storey structure houses the Asper School of Business and the Transport Institute. The 130,000 sq. ft. structure is finished in red brick with decorative stripes of Tyndall stone. The choice of material pays homage to the neighboring historic Taché Hall. The exterior of the building is quite restrained with ribbons of windows providing the main decorative element.
The site was chosen by architect Étienne Gaboury for the view across Freedman Crescent to the Red River and for the proximity to the central campus buildings.
A large central atrium serves to bring natural light into the interior spaces and provides the opportunity for students and professors to cross paths or gather to discuss ideas.
The building won a Manitoba Association of Architects award in 1989.
