Campus Architecture has the fundamental power to celebrate human activity and interaction, to nurture community and academic exploration, and connect us to our historic context and natural environment. The ever-evolving academic community its diversity and virtually round-the-clock patterns of activity finds expression through place-making that enhances a University's vibrant social and intellectual networks. The profound influence of place and academic exchange operates at multiple scales; from the chance encounter of two people on a stair landing or window seat, to the academic exchange within a classroom, to the community gathering of a department or school on the campus grounds.
glaserworks' Higher Education Studio has been recognized throughout the region and nation for the exceptional quality of its renovation, adaptive re-use and university academic projects. We have a successful tradition of providing architectural and planning services, project leadership, and interior design services with the specific task of delivering a successful high-quality outcome on time and on budget. Relevant projects include the University of Virginia's South Lawn Project, College of Arts and Sciences, Lindner Center at the University of Cincinnati, Swift Hall Renovation and the Steger Student Life Center, University of Cincinnati.
In the university context, we believe the first act of design is listening. This becomes especially critical because at times it is necessary to bring together a wide variety of divergent interests. We recognize that with each University or College the needs and constituencies are special and require a carefully-crafted evaluative process in order to meet high aspirations.
We collectively see our work strengthening and enriching the University environment in terms of place, culture, sustainability and curriculum. In response we offer a multi-talented design team combined with a sophisticated and reliable design/delivery process to address this type of work and its many challenges.
