The Richard Ivey Building is a state-of-the-art, glass, wood, and stone structure, which forms part of the Western University campus.
Entro’s involvement included the development of wayfinding, environmental graphics and donor recognition programs.
Inspiration for the building comes from a ‘geode,’ a rock cavity lined with crystals and other minerals. To correlate with the building’s structural elements, earthen tones and bronze-based materials were chosen for the donor recognition walls.
By applying raised or inset letters, each donor wall features an interplay of light and shadow that is reminiscent of rock formations.
