Building Features:

Frey Hall was designed to strengthen the visual and social LINKS between the Student Activities Center to the south and the Chemistry Building to the north, Frey Hall reinforces the edge of the existing campus green, while its walls of lattice for climbing plants create an active dialog between nature and the built environment. The interior architecture, including the new central atrium, was designed to foster a sense of community and common identity for both students and faculty. The interior layout facilitates collaboration, is active and engaging, and encourages informal interaction. A variety of types, sizes, public, and private meeting and gathering spaces address flexibility in use and configuration. The spaces enable state-of-the-art technologies and provide opportunities for collaborative learning that are active, experimental and based in group learning.
