Jeanne Gang, founding principal of architectural firm Studio Gang

Spearheaded by Studio Gang architects, the new campus design will be a model of sustainable construction and practice. It will unite the college’s two campuses, bringing all of its programs in art, design, architecture, and writing in one location to create new adjacencies and interactions while developing yet-to-be-discovered modes of making. The new campus will be a flexible platform for learning that’s purposeful without being prescriptive.

The plans

Architects: Studio Gang
Contractor: Hathaway Dinwiddie
Sustainability consultants: Rocky Mountain Institute, Atelier Ten
Size of project: 90,000 square feet of building with 65,000 square feet of outdoor space

Studio Gang’s designs connect disciplines in new ways through a vibrant indoor-outdoor environment, offering a highly sustainable model for the future of creative practices.

The Phases

Discovery phase

Establishes overall project vision, a framework for new architecture and modifications to existing buildings, and relationships with the surrounding campus and city.

Schematic design

Determines the project’s spatial components, both interior and exterior, the size and shape of the architecture, and strategies for sustainability.

Design development

Refines and defines the volumes, relationships, materials, fixtures, furniture, equipment, storage, office space, room layouts, and infrastructural systems of the architecture and landscape.

Construction documentation

Translates the design into coordinated and buildable directions and details for construction.


Builds the vision!


Transitions from construction, testing, and tuning of systems into move-in of furnishings, equipment, and people to occupy and operate the new unified campus.
