Transforming Higher Education Campuses
Just in time for the beginning of the new school year, BNIM celebrated the opening of four projects on higher education campuses across the country. Reflecting a variety of uses and programs, each of these projects shares in BNIM’s belief in Building Positive.
The Patient-Centered Care Learning Center, University of Missouri
Designed based on the principles of patient-centered care and the desire to be a physical manifestation of Missouri history, the Patient-Centered Care Learning Center includes improved daylight quality, access to views of campus, generous amenities for students, and an enhanced focus on collaboration between students, faculty, and staff.
The Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology, Metropolitan Community College – Omaha
Filling a niche for a maker space that does not yet exist in the region, the Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology encourages the “making of things,” where prototyping, design, and production can spur innovation and entrepreneurship. The transformative instructional design employs new work-embedded methodologies for more effective and efficient training.
Lewis Center for the Arts, Princeton University
The Lewis Center for the Arts creates a cultural hub on Princeton’s campus, housing performance and teaching space for the programs in Theater and Dance, the Department of Music, and the Fellows in the Creative and Performing Arts program. The project also integrated Princeton’s commitment to sustainability into the design for an elegant and light-filled facility. Completed in collaboration with Steven Holl Architects.
Seaton Hall and Seaton Court Renovation and Expansion, Kansas State University
The College of Architecture, Planning and Design (APDesign) at Kansas State University is consistently ranked among the top architecture schools in the country, yet its aging facilities could not support the innovative pedagogy taking place within. The renovation and expansion for Seaton Hall is a porous and cutting-edge learning environment that delicately blends the existing building with a new addition. Completed in collaboration with Ennead and Confluence.
