OUR HIGHER EDUCATION PROJEC TS reflect the

purpose of the institutions, their people, and their principles. As a knowledge-based practice, we share the values of our college and university clients. The culture and the context of each unique campus inform and inspire our building designs and campus planning. Through an iterative process of listening and questioning we create memorable places for the campus community to learn, live, and work.

COLLABORATION is fundamental to our practice. Our team of architects, planners, and designers include specialists in learning spaces, student life, housing, campus planning, workplace, and science and technology. With 14 offices worldwide, we also provide team leadership familiar with the codes and practices of each region. As we probe to understand campus needs and preferences, we explore alternative designs to achieve optimal solutions for today and into the future—from classrooms designed to respond to new pedagogies to staff spaces that incorporate innovative workplace configurations to library stacks being converted for group study. Our designs reflect the changes that dominate the landscape of higher education today.

CREATING A FRAMEWORK FOR GROWTH AND CHANGE Our campus master planning philosophy is based on the premise that every campus has a story ingrained in its history, mission, and geography. We seek to understand that story and articulate it through the design of campus buildings, open spaces, and circulation frameworks. Our planning looks to the future and recognizes the significant changes occurring within the landscape of higher education.

Increasingly, our strategic initiatives include optimizing space, adaptively reusing existing facilities to address obsolescence, planning for online learning, and continually reimagining higher education environments for advances in technology. In addition, as deferred maintenance demands accumulate, we work with campuses to consider removal of buildings and the opportunities to reimagine open spaces.

Partnerships often dominate the planning efforts as institutions join with communities to create dynamic campus edges with retail, cultural, and residential opportunities. Students seek engagement beyond the campus boundaries, and institutions look for new avenues to extend their campuses. Private developers may provide the financing for these changes, and real estate advisors guide on the purchase and sale of properties.

DESIGNING MODERN LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS It is a timeless fact that knowledge is acquired through education and experience. The manner in which this happens, however, is radically changing. Mobile technology, the emergence of Millennials, and the interplay of proximity and distance are transforming higher education in the West and beyond. Trends in education, workplace, and user experience design are converging in new and powerful ways. The old order of academia is being upended. In this context of change, design

has an increasingly important voice. The new pedagogical paradigms can’t be achieved if facilities are not just updated, but reimagined. Innovations across the academic enterprise cannot be fully tapped unless the role of the library is re-examined and made central. The emergence of new models of peer-to-peer learning are transforming the role and relationships of students and faculty. These organizational and cultural considerations have significant spatial aspects, involving design

decisions at all scales. These can range from overall campus organization and town/gown relationships at one end of the scale, to classroom furnishing and the role of academic offices at the other end. Plus entirely new considerations have to be navigated such as balancing physical and technology investments, the importance of a well-designed student experience, and faculty change

management processes. These considerations are pushing Academia into uncomfortable and uncharted territory where trusted, experienced, and capable design advisors are essential. Whether it is reimagining the role of furniture at a community college, exploring dynamic public/private partnerships for new avenues of growth, or curating knowledge across world

RESPECTING & REINFORCING CAMPUS CHARACTER & TRADITION Within this changing environment, the character of the campus—its sense of place— remains a defining factor in a student’s experience. The many pieces of the campus fit together to influence how students arrive to class, experience the seasons, find their preferred dining venue, locate a secluded study carrel, create a fun place to meet new friends, and end their day with a quiet place to sleep. It is these special places on the campus

that become the treasured moments and the lasting memories. In both our campus master planning and building design, Perkins Eastman honors the heritage and traditions of each institution and looks to create opportunities for new memory-making. On most campuses challenges are inherent with the existing heritage. The costs surrounding aging infrastructure and obsolete

uses are staggering, and informed decisions regarding options for adaptive reuse, renovation, or removal are needed. With often diminished funding sources, sustainability for colleges and universities must be viewed holistically from environmental, social, and financial perspectives.

ENHANCING STUDENT LIFE The role of community on campus is being tested in very meaningful ways. We know institutions continue to stretch the learning experience beyond the classroom—into housing, libraries, student centers, recreation, and wellness facilities, as well as in partnership with business and industry. These objectives demand a more dynamic, energetic, and nimble administration that promotes a cross-disciplinary and technologyrich platform. The perspective of students pivots quickly from the campus to national, international,

and global perspectives. Institutions need to reflect these perspectives physically to ensure the learning experience is rich and diverse. The physical and virtual environments can adapt and support these influences through a greater variety and a fusion of programs. Buildings can rarely be designed for a single purpose; learning and curated study centers, formal and informal group collaboration space, and technology hubs must be distributed throughout campus. This notion of blended social and academic activities

extends to the virtual campus as well through social media, shared online blogs, and class discussion forums. The physical environment stretches beyond campus to connect with cultural and recreational assets in the community to foster a strong institution-community interdependence. Students want a rich and deeply meaningful experience that seems as natural, dynamic, and unscripted as the world around them, and universities must deliver this experience in order to remain competitive.

CREATING MODERN CAMPUSES IN DIFFERENT CULTURES As countries strive to educate their populations, they look to colleges and universities in the United States for guidance on curriculum development and campus design. With our offices around the world providing regional expertise, Perkins Eastman has successfully worked in multiple countries and time zones; at any one time, our

clients may include a university based in the United States that desires a global footprint and a college overseas that is partnering with institutions from other countries.

conjunction with the curriculum and the mission of the institution. In this way we create the places where students learn and socialize and that will impact a student for a lifetime.

Frequently, opportunities include ground-up “greenfield� campuses. We study the climate, geology, and culture of the region in 1. Bhutan Education City Thimphu, Bhutan

ON THE BOARDS The future holds many opportunities that will influence the physical environment. Institutions will be asked by government, administrative leadership, and consumers to demonstrate effectiveness and value. A student-centered experience from recruitment to successful degree attainment will underlie mission. Partnerships will grow between institutions at home, and we expect more collaboration with local communities to share regional

resources, create vibrant and sustainable communities, and cooperatively develop assets at the campus edge where community and campus come together. The learning culture on campuses across the country and around the globe is shifting quickly to adapt and leverage changing technology. We see all of these forces having a profound impact on design, effective learning platforms, and the creation of memorable college and university places.
