CAMPUS OFFICES The Campus Offices project explores how a building can exist as both historic and modern concurrently. Through context-inspired materiality and juxtaposition of form, material, and texture, the project carefully establishes relationships between multiple contexts: campus/downtown, existing/new, traditional/modern, individual/group. The renovation and new addition reassert the buildingâ€™s historic prominence as one of the oldest extant buildings on the town common while making a clear statement that this is a modern building, designed for modern performance and use.
