OBJECTIVE

The building program is organized to foster serendipitous social and academic exchanges, extending education beyond traditional classroom settings.

CONTEXT

Neighboring the historic Barton Hall and Hoy Field, Gates Hall re-energizes a previously underutilized campus corner, creating a new campus gateway and frontage.

PERFORMANCE

Surfaced in vibrant stainless steel panels, the building’s cantilevered entry canopy covers an outdoor plaza and student social space also defined by native landscaping and sculptural forms.
