Entry Description

Situated within a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood. The project condenses the essential functions of the university onto a site that is 100 times smaller than its suburban main campus. Thus, the horizontal axis arrangement of the main campus is turned into a vertical orientation. The program elements are then configured and stacked using a modular grid system and split into two volumes. At the street level, the ground floor integrates both existing and newly planted vegetation within a porous site boundary. The various landscaped terraces foster social, academic and professional interactions.
