Mash-ups and melting pots: Nontraditional communities are changing campus architecture

Alexander K. Wing, AIA, NCARB

Cynthia Labelle, AIA
Senior Project Manager

To improve learning outcomes, spur innovation, and optimize capital investments, higher-ed is turning to capital projects which deliberately intersect programs and people in new ways. From campus-scale projects to individual buildings and specific programs within buildings, the payoffs are clear – mashups provide platforms for innovation, break down boundaries, and avoid unnecessary duplication of space and resources. Through application of melting pot principles to design a series of projects ranging from health sciences to engineering, education, and advanced manufacturing programs, session leaders show how such facilities reinforce institutional missions and bring people together in new ways, and the metrics for measuring the very real performance improvements they bring.
