Durable Solutions for the Beautification of the Abdul Ladha Building Ali, Hadir; Rosales, Guilherme; Wu, Sean


In January of 2019, students in GPP 504 Policy Analysis and Evaluation were commissioned with different faculties at UBC in collaboration with SEEDs with different assigned policy problems. Our group, consisting of Hadir Ali, Sean Wu, and Guilherme Rosales were tasked with the “Beautification” of the Abdul Ladha Science Student Centre. We were presented with multiple perceived issues within the building but ultimately we were told that the building was built approximately ten years ago, and as a result of lack of upkeep it is currently in bad aesthetic condition. In order to address and resolve this issue our group has put together a package of options to make Ladha more inviting and aesthetically pleasing. In this endeavour we visited the building multiple times, reviewed the current policies of the Science Undergraduate Society (SUS), collaborated with different faculties and workshopped ideas to enhance Ladha aesthetically.
