1981 - Asian Centre Opens

UBC expands its interest in Asia as ties between Canada and Pacific-Rim countries increase. The new Asian Centre—constructed in part from materials used for the Sanyo Pavilion at Expo ’70 in Osaka, Japan—houses the Asian Studies library and offers space for the Asia-related interests of various departments on campus.
