1 REVISITING HALEY This section summarizes analysis for understanding the Haley Center from the campus scale all the way to the scale of a single room. This analysis will help identify and support the questions to which this study will attempt to address. This study is not seeking to provide concrete answers; rather, seeks to provide possibilities.

PRELIMINARY STUDY RE-SKINNING THE TOWER

Rumors of Haley Center being demolished have long circulated Auburn University. Motivated by a desire to rehabilitate before starting over, Stacy Norman Architects engaged in a voluntary creative design experiment to re-imagine what the Haley Center tower might be. This exercise was largely exterior and explored the addition of a double skin facade attached to the existing tower structure for a strong effect. A new stair tower was also added to satisfy modern egress requirements which is one of the greatest issues facing the tower component of Haley. Additionally, lower level masonry was substituted for patterned terracotta panels. This project was shown to Auburn University as an example of potential - not necessarily a solution. As a result, Stacy Norman Architects was then asked to explore the potential of a reinvented Haley Center (both inside and out) that does not include the tower. The rest of this study will forego the tower.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION [page 1 results from Google]

Quadrant one faces the stadium because we’re number one. Two is the quads because there are two. Three is Foy because it has three letters. And I can’t remember the fourth but it’s the only other one... I did one of the campus tours, and that was helpful. -Emma Wall Nobody is ever on time on the first day of classes because they can’t find their classroom. -Student (overheard in Haley)


WHY SAVE HALEY?

With careful planning and design, we believe the Haley Center can be one of Auburn’s most popular and beloved buildings for all of the right reasons.

HALEY CENTER - REVISITING

The easiest (and more costly) option would be to demolish the Haley Center and start anew. This approach, however, has serious logistical issues with the fiber cables supporting campus being housed in a portion of the building’s basement.

Though Haley has its challenges and weaknesses, it is still a solid structure with great potential for reinventing itself through a lessconfusing programmatic concept and new considerations given to external conditions such as natural light and visual transparency. The prospect of reusing and rehabilitating an existing building has environmental and contextual effects that outweigh the option of demolition.

15

The Haley Center has long been a nexus on Auburn’s campus. With a close proximity to the Student Center, Jordan-Hare Stadium, the Quads, Cater Lawn, and many other buildings meant for learning, this site deserves to support one of the best buildings that the university has to offer so that it can in turn better support all of its neighbors.


2 REIMAGINING HALEY This section showcases images and concepts that inspire the vision of what a rehabilitated Haley Center could be. Inspiration ranges from interior and exterior precedents and comes together to help determine the key concepts that will inform tangible possibilities and schemes.

REIMAGINING HALEY PUBLIC SPACE CONCEPT I:

The areas between quads currently house exterior stairs and feel barren. There is a possibility to make these areas feel more like a merging of both the site and the quads themselves rather than a leftover. A combination of covering and enclosing the areas, providing new circulation, and bringing nature in would help make the areas into destinations for students.

Atriums, green space, & circulation in quad pockets


REIMAGINING HALEY RETAIL SPACE CONCEPT II:

The ground level wants to open up to students and faculty in the form of retail, restaurants, and recreational services. Though a bookstore with a semi-open facade already exists, much of the ground level remains solid and closed off. A much more open and inviting ground level would be a benefit to both the university and the students.

REIMAGINING HALEY STUDENT SPACE CONCEPT III:

Student spaces within The Haley Center should be flexible and future-forward in terms of how students, in tandem with technology, utilize study/work areas of various sizes and privacy. With Haley being a nexus on campus, there is opportunity to showcase what students are doing at Auburn by implementing galleries throughout these areas.

REIMAGINING HALEY FACULTY SPACE CONCEPT IV:

It is important for faculty to feel at home within the Haley Center. Natural light, attractive views, and community within and outside of departments are keys to achieving comfort. There are only so many opportunities for offices and work spaces on the perimeter that allow for windows and views towards campus. One way to alleviate this problem is to open floor plates to allow for special opportunities, allow natural light and promote community with neighbors.

REIMAGINING HALEY WORK CONCEPTS RETHINKING WORK:

The idea that all work should be done within an enclosed, private office is one that deserves a revisit. The concepts of public workspaces for collaboration have caught on within the corporate world while students have also expressed interest in and increasingly been given flexible spaces for learning and studying. This is an important concept that should also be incorporated into the areas that faculty occupy by blending and merging the traditional office with more public and shared spaces along a spectrum that aims to accommodate all types of faculty work as best as possible.

CASE STUDY ON AUBURN’S CAMPUS SCHOOL OF KINESIOLOGY:

The School of Kinesiology is an example of a recent project on Auburn’s campus that has begun looking at how faculty and staff can begin to step outside a personal office to boost collaboration and community with peers through other options for work. Haley Center provides an opportunity to expand upon those intentions and take it a step further to help bring together different departments on campus while still accommodating individual preferences.

3 REORGANIZING HALEY This section looks at potential schemes for reorganizing Haley in terms of overall building massing and program between oors. Each scheme explores very different options and exists with the potential for mixing and matching concepts between one another and is not restricted within itself.

RECAPPING HALEY This study explored just a few of the many possibilities that exist for the future of the Haley Center. With the proper understanding of what currently stands on the site and the challenges / opportunities that the existing provides combined with an inspiring vision of what could be, the Haley Center is an enormous opportunity waiting to be reinvented and enjoyed for generations of students and faculty to come.
