The College Union Building commands a view of Oregon’s largest lake and the Cascade Mountains. Prior to the project, the building suffered from lack of image, inefficient layouts and a narrow design. The school wanted to alleviate the facility’s shortcomings and capitalize on the location’s strengths, marking the College Union as the true hub of the campus.
