Fostering conversation and engagement transcends merely providing gathering spaces—it’s about cultivating an ethos of wellness, inclusivity, and sustainability, as modeled by the Mashouf Wellness Center at San Francisco State University. Explore how a single project—in this case the first major ground-up building in 24 years—models wellness, inclusion, and sustainability for other projects, plans, and policies on an evolving campus. We will share approaches to engaging students in an inclusive design process and strategies for designing spaces that encourage discourse and cultivate an ethos of inclusivity and wellness.
