ArchDaily has posted a story about the new building at the Washington, DC, campus of American University. We loved working with the School of International Services team and architect of record Quinn Evans.
“How can we design a building that inspires students to dream? This charge—articulated by the dean of the country’s largest foreign service program—guided the design team for this new building on the American University campus. Serving as a symbol of the school’s tradition of global service, the anticipated LEED Gold certified building provides a vibrant setting for teaching, research and public dialogue.
Design strategies, including on-site generation of renewable energy, Cradle to Cradle material specifications, and abundant fresh air and daylight, were developed and prioritized in close collaboration with the School’s students, faculty and staff to serve as pedagogical tools capable of demonstrating the highest degrees of environmental responsibility.”
