A Mackey Mitchell principal, along with Patrick Connor, Executive Director of Residential Programs and Services at Indiana University, recently gave a presentation at ACUHO-I’s annual July conference in Anaheim, CA.
Currently under construction, the Rose Avenue housing project at Indiana University was chosen as one of three host sites in the country for implementing concepts derived from the “21st Century Project,” which began as a multi-phased initiative to discuss the residence hall of the future.
Students were involved in the design dialogue from the earliest stages, with the goal of designing housing in a way that enables students to develop relationships and see themselves as part of a campus community. The LEED-gold anticipated design adopts the four main “21st Century Project” guidelines which focus on community, technology, flexibility, and sustainability. The concept is guided by the belief that distinctive, functional, and technologically advanced living experiences can attract and retain students. MSKTD is the Architect-of-Record for the project.
