The Calgary Board of Education will move its headquarters in thesoon-to-be-builtoffice tower near the Dr. Carl Safran School. A courtyard separating the office tower from the school will be joined by a glass pavilion, a dramatic space designed for use as a high-tech display area with large-screen monitors, according to a July 24 Calgary Herald arti.
