Most colleges are always in the midst of planning, building, renovating, or maintaining an infrastructure project. This special issue examines how campus buildings and grounds help colleges do their jobs — or, in some cases, get in the way.
A well-designed space can improve interaction between a college’s students and its faculty members. It can give first-generation students a place to congregate and a taste of home. And it can help a rapidly expanding university serve a growing student body without having to choose between function and aesthetics.
With a focus on “flexibility for the future,” this special report also examines some practical questions colleges are facing today. Do faculty members really need private offices? Can “P3s” — public-private partnerships — offer a viable way to build more efficiently? Is modular construction an option? (It worked for Harvard.)
