A learning tree on campus

DLSU’s newest building is a showcase of environmental sustainability


You may have noticed De La Salle University (DLSU) now has a new building, the Henry Sy Sr. Hall, which is part of the Centennial Renewal Plan. DLSU celebrated its centennial year in 2011.

The building hopes to help make the environment more conducive to learning. A big part of the building is dedicated to its learning commons, with beanbags, couches and WiFi, where students can take a break from their heavy schedules.

The Hall was designed around a tree—a strong statement on DLSU’s advocacy of environment sustainability and responsibility. Some floors have open windows to let the sunlight in—best for the plants  strategically placed in the building to give that outdoor feel amid the pollution of Taft Avenue.

This new learning hub is an innovation that reflects the 21st century.
