Part of an international competition, the design creates a massive “black box” with everything turned inside-out for maximum porosity between the campus and streets. The design becomes a part of art-making. Students are engaged in continuous dialogue with the public and get to experience everything from all angles.
The challenge was to design a campus that expressed the college’s spirit and embraced the city’s diversity. From glass panels, to courtyards and alleyways, all spaces were carefully detailed to offer varied ways for interaction, reflection and inspiration, a result of a strong collective team effort.
