Visitors and prospective students will be drawn into the Campbell University Medical Campus through a tree-lined entry sequence that culminates at a public plaza and entry portal to the College of Osteopathic Medicine. Placed upon the highest and most central part of the site, the building will be visually impactful in presence, and iconic in style. The ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY150COST PER SQ FT$363.75CITATIONWork in Progress CitationFEATURED IN2012 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYWork in Progress will draw upon many successful design components seen in the heart of main campus, yet possess its own unique identity. From the exterior, the building will reveal the activities that take place within through collegiate characteristics and student-centered spaces.

In keeping with basic principles of osteopathic medical practice, the campus will use many sustainable design concepts, including north-south solar orientation for daylighting; bioswales; long-lasting, easily maintainable materials; and a high-performance energy system yielding long-term environmental benefits.

An active/public plaza to the north and quite/private lawn to the south enables the building to engage the landscape.

“Clear plan organization and a handsomely restrained physical vocabulary give this project the potential to be great.”--2012 jury
