Addressing current student expectations on campuses with mid-century buildings and a tight budget requires collaboration between the client and design team as well as creative placemaking solutions. As part of repositioning for the 21st century, Drexel University renovated the Korman Center, a 1950s library, and the academic quad to serve as a 24/7 student hub and interdisciplinary academic study center that encourages student collaboration. You will learn how to develop practical, sustainable, and design-forward solutions for updating mid-century buildings and spaces that will attract and retain a diverse student population.
Learning Outcome 1: Actively participate in repositioning your institution to enhance its values and mission with every building project.
Learning Outcome 2: Advocate for retaining and reusing mid-century buildings instead of overlooking their potential and writing them off as obsolete.
Learning Outcome 3: Identify bold and sustainable design solutions that will give your institution an advantage in a competitive marketplace.
Learning Outcome 4: Explain how to develop and implement a communication and working protocol with project teams to help insure on-time and on-budget results.
