Meet the newest Tradewell Fellows to join the legacy.

EYP Green Lab's design will help this historic building achieve energy use savings of 47% annually.

EYP’s Tradewell Fellowship, now in its 22nd year, has been an important milestone in the careers of its dedicated and successful alumni.

In these unprecedented times, every day we hear compelling stories of health professionals coming together to deliver care for those impacted by COVID-19.

Happier, healthier patients aren’t the only positives of following the Planetree philosophy.

More and more colleges and universities are realizing they need improved health and wellness facilities that better address today’s students’ health concerns.

The McMorrow Reports showcases EYP expertise in healthcare planning with a mini-case study on how best practices in bed-floor planning informed our designs for Ocean Medical Center.

Evidence-Based Design (EBD) measurably impacts the patient experience and clinical delivery of care.

We designed the Taylor Science Center to meet several strategic goals - ten years after its opening, we returned to the Clinton, New York campus to analyze the impact of our design.

The most successful colleges and universities we know with new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) buildings have not merely built new buildings, they have rethought them from the ground up. These institutions have radically redesigned them — either building entirely new structures or dramatically renovating existing ones — in ways that have improved professors’ teaching and students’ learning processes. The impacts, which EYP has tracked during the last 10 years and chronicled in our formal research studies, have been eye-opening in four dimensions: student enrollment and retention; faculty recruitment; learning experience; research and collaboration opportunities.

As American colleges and universities increasingly recognize the value of educating the “whole student,” the effect of campus residential life on various student outcomes – campus engagement, peer interactions, etc. – has been the subject of ongoing study. EYP is one of the first to systematically investigate the impact of the spatial environment itself on student development, attitudes, and outcomes. Our Living-Learning research findings offer colleges and universities, as well as architects and builders, key insights into how space types and usage impact student learning and development, so that they can maximize resources to enhance student experience.
