Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss strategies for balancing a desire for transparency—as an expression of an educational institution’s pedagogical mission— with the need for energy efficiency and occupant comfort.
  2. Describe low-energy climate-control systems suitable for tropical climates.
  3. Describe how universities are transforming former industrial buildings and disused academic buildings for new educational uses, and discuss methods for structural retrofit and seamless incorporation of new mechanical systems.
  4. Discuss off-site fabrication as a strategy for building on constrained urban campuses, and outline the challenges to such an approach.

COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES

College and university buildings aren’t a single typology. The projects on the following pages range from art studios in a revamped industrial structure to transparent labs that showcase the work going on inside. Collectively, they demonstrate ingenious solutions for challenging sites, for adaptive reuse, and for creating buildings that foster collaboration and community. Reading the section and taking the online quiz qualifies for one hour of continuing education credit (see page 116).
