  • How can a university building, intended for short-term use, be re-purposed to support over-all university planning, embody the culture of a new user, and enhance that user group's pedagogy? Reusing campus structures can be highly effective, but limitations and pre-conceptions can be challenging. We will share the planning behind the transformation of Yale Law School's Baker Hall and demonstrate how deeply engaging the new occupant's culture can powerfully guide building transformation.

    Learning Outcome 1: Assess the effect of providing graduate school housing for one professional graduate school on the overall graduate student housing population.

    Learning Outcome 2: Facilitate programming sessions from the point of view of how can the culture and pedagogy of the users be infused in their built environment.

    Learning Outcome 3: Engage user groups to overcome preconceptions of existing conditions and/or structures to be adapted so you can create right-fit, culture-driven solutions.

    Learning Outcome 4: Look to university-wide resources, such as stored art collections, to enhance the capacity of the built environment to tell the story of the unit's culture and mission, bringing together otherwise discrete aspects of the university.
