Alex O'Briant, AIA
Associate Principal
Ennead Architects

How can your campus move beyond the constraints of tradition to stay on the leading edge and leverage more advanced ways to work, learn, and discover? Alex O’Briant examines the current era of campus upheaval, and the forces now reshaping institutional capital investment strategies. He sets out contextual clues to look for that can pave the way for more relevant and innovative facility designs. He profiles alternative solutions being adopted at higher ed institutions to blend traditional contexts with transformational architecture, and the early stakeholder engagement strategies that are raising expectations and opening up new possibilities.
