Rejuvenation

Investing in Existing Residence Halls for Bright Futures

In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.
Abstract: Almost every institution has existing residence halls that they could upgrade for a fraction of the cost of building new. As institutions seek to meet student housing needs, they should consider renovating existing buildings as a viable strategy for creating state-of-the-art facilities. Taking this path can extend building life, attract students, and save capital. In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.

Mid-century Make-over

Creating a 21st Century Learning Center and Student Hub

As part of repositioning for the 21st century, Drexel University renovated the Korman Center, a 1950s library, and the academic quad to serve as a 24/7 student hub and interdisciplinary academic study center that encourages student collaboration.
Abstract: Addressing current student expectations on campuses with mid-century buildings and a tight budget requires collaboration between the client and design team as well as creative placemaking solutions. As part of repositioning for the 21st century, Drexel University renovated the Korman Center, a 1950s library, and the academic quad to serve as a 24/7 student hub and interdisciplinary academic study center that encourages student collaboration. You will learn how to develop practical, sustainable, and design-forward solutions for updating mid-century buildings and spaces that will attract and retain a diverse student population.

Classrooms of the Future in Buildings of the Past

As the university re-evaluates undergraduate learning environments, a pilot classroom in historic Harvard Hall is the springboard for integrated planning and design processes.
Abstract: Challenges with technologies, historical spaces, and resources make it hard to provide the learning spaces new pedagogies require. Harvard University has found a creative solution to these challenges. As the university re-evaluates undergraduate learning environments, a pilot classroom in historic Harvard Hall is the springboard for integrated planning and design processes. We'll discuss our process (including how we used utilization data and stakeholder feedback during decision making), the classroom's design, and how we're using lessons learned to iterate the space.

Rubik’s Cube

Phased New and Renovated Construction for the Sciences

Yale University's new Yale Science Building and its associated renovation projects illustrate how a new facility can integrate under-utilized space, meeting program needs and connecting existing science buildings.
Abstract: A combination of new construction and renovation can optimize space while remedying previous planning problems. Yale University's new Yale Science Building and its associated renovation projects illustrate how a new facility can integrate under-utilized space, meeting program needs and connecting existing science buildings. We'll share the planning methodologies and design processes used in a project this complex, along with technical challenges unique to building and renovating science facilities.

Developing New Typologies for Innovative Group Housing in Under-Utilized Spaces

This session will describe how an innovative typology for students’ small-group living transformed and expanded group living options at Lawrence University.
Abstract: To be fully residential without adding campus buildings, Lawrence University successfully prototyped new group housing typologies in under-utilized residential building space across campus. This session will describe how an innovative typology for students’ small-group living transformed and expanded group living options in surprising, incongruous campus spaces. You will learn how the expanded project team, tasked with thinking outside of the box, invented a new housing typology uniquely connected to the existing campus culture and site.

A Survival Guide to Planning and Executing Phased Renovations

Abstract: Renovating campus buildings that are partially occupied is a frequent challenge. Planning and executing an efficient phased renovation optimizes resource use and minimizes disruption. This presentation will focus on lessons learned in three case studies of phased renovations, comprising mid-20th century science and humanities buildings as well as student housing. You will learn about best practices from projects across multiple building types as well as examine planning methodologies, design processes, and technical challenges for broader applicability.
