Eye in the sky looks down on Welcome Centre footprint

Students in professor Min Bae’s film studies class took a bird’s-eye view to Wednesday’s ground-breaking for the Welcome Centre.

Using a camera mounted to an F550 drone, the students captured aerial footage showing the building’s shape, outlined in orange on the ground, while some of its future occupants wave from the site of their offices.

The centre’s free-form design will create an open, welcoming feel for visitors to the building, slated to become a campus landmark and the gateway to an ever-growing and changing University community.
