Located within the heart of the university along the Red Cedar River, the massing and geometry of the building complete the sequence of spaces in the college’s existing facilities while creating a new connection to the river walk. A riparian meadow is designed to both manage storm water and reestablish a natural habitat along the Red Cedar River.

Inspired by Broad College’s team-based community culture, the design weaves together classrooms, team rooms and social spaces at a variety of scales. These program elements permeate all aspects of the academic experience, with an emphasis on collaborative environments supporting the college’s cutting-edge research curriculum.

The pavilion’s masonry, glass and metal exterior express the contemporary functionality of its forward-looking programs while complementing the materials and sensibility of the surrounding campus architecture.
