Spring 2013 | Professor: Omer Akin | In collaboration with Jason Kim | Carnegie Mellon University Campus

A ten-year masterplan for Carnegie Mellon University’s future campus expansions dictates the need for an interdisciplinary hub to encourage interaction between disciplines. The location of this hub allows for a redefinition of the campus’ perceivable ‘center’. A proposed atrium fosters interaction between the stacked program blocks, each block fostering a different type of interaction. The atrium also connects to the ground level, where a café and exhibition space welcomes and shares interdisciplinary work with the general student body.
