Summary Back to Top

This project provided much needed space for the School of Architecture's programs, while also serving as a tool to educate students in responsible building and the incorporation of technology with design.

The South Addition was designed by William Sherman, Associate Professor and former Chair of the Department of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The 7,620 SF addition provides 26 new faculty offices, as well as conference rooms, review rooms, and a faculty research studio.

This portion of the project also included the renovation of a portion of the existing south wing. As part of the renovation, the existing south stairwell was enclosed and a large landing between floors was fitted with an inverted sundial, a sliver of light, measuring the hours and the seasons.

The East Addition was designed by W. G. Clark, Professor of Architecture, and consists of a tall, thin 6,810 SF mini-tower that serves as the new face of the school. The design incorporated a new lower level entry and reception hall that features review and exhibit areas.
