The Think Tank Campus
VANCOUVER is an amazingly diverse place to live, study work, and play. Besides being consistent in the top 5 world cities for the quality of life, Vancouver is also a mecca of creativity, especially in the CG world. Vancouver is home to more game development companies than any other city in the world.
Think Tank Training Centre is located in a beautiful heritage building at the bottom of Lonsdale, just across from the Quay. This makes it a great location for those who have to commute, as the Lonsdale Quay is a central hub for many bus routes, including the seabus, for those coming from downtown. We are also within walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants and shops that our students enjoy regularly.
First and second semester students reside in the newer upstairs section of the school. Throughout the upstairs we have created a 20,000 leagues theme to provide a unique and creative space for the students.
The ground floor of Think Tank currently is where the third semester and alumni students reside. It is split into three labs; one for the modelers, one for the animators, and the last for the alumni. Other features on the floor include a kitchen and a theatre for movies and presentations.
We have done our best to create a unique and creative space for our students by showcasing artwork of great talents from around the world throughout the school and all classrooms. At Think Tank we encourage relationship building and to start connecting with other students or school staff we have a lounge area where students can enjoy their lunch or have a game or two. There is also a large selection of reading material, including a large stash of comic books for students who need a break from the computer. The life drawing and sculpting room is adjacent to the lounge, where a large collapsible table facilitates the switch between the two different classes.
