    B.C. Campus Composite

    by ArchitectureWeek

But a new complex for Surrey, British Columbia, Canada has drawn attention by combining an unlikely pair: a regional shopping mall and a campus for a major university.

    The 1.7 million-square-foot (158,000-square-meter) Central City project has drawn further attention by receiving the Special Jury Prize at this year's MIPIM (Marché International des Professionels de l'Immobilier, or International Property Market) Awards. Canadian firm Bing Thom Architects was honored at a celebration in Cannes, France, with what is considered the "Oscar" of the property industry.
