Constructed in 1964, the Center had undergone numerous additions, alterations and reconfigurations over the years. In 2015, University administrators undertook a campus survey which revealed that students viewed the existing building as crowded, uninviting and fragmented.
To address the “fragmented” character of the existing building, EYP was first asked to create a Master Plan to unify the entire facility. The Master Plan includes a large atrium that serves as a central “living room” space around which new and existing components of the building are connected both horizontally and vertically.
