Usdan Student Center Feasibility Study

Location: Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts
Architect: designLAB
Completed: Feasibility Study

In collaboration with designLab Architects we developed a series of concepts to integrate the student center into the campus fabric and create a central destination. Conceived as a flexible outdoor space for studying, student events and dining services, the ‘piazza’ will become a much needed gathering place on the steeply sloping campus. The design will strengthen the ‘boulevard’, a central pedestrian spine winding through campus, and set a precedent landscape typology for future phased development.
