Nancy Richardson Design Center

This state-of-the-art facility serves as a creative space for students and faculty in programs across campus, including interior architecture and design, apparel and merchandising, landscape architecture, art, engineering, product development, entrepreneurship and construction management.  It houses design studios, fabrication/prototype/ideation labs, presentation spaces, classrooms and computer labs. A primary goal in the design was facilitating collaboration among students, faculty and community on a daily basis. The building’s central gallery and atrium define intuitive gathering and entry points as central hubs of activity that encourage interactive encounters.
