Watch: Placemaking at the University of Washington
We're excited to announce the completion of the first phase of the University of Washington's North Campus Housing project! Designed in conjunction with landscape architect OLIN, this placemaking initiative connects a previously disjointed university district to the original campus core. In addition to providing much-needed student housing, the three new residence halls, the first of five planned for the North Campus, form a new University community defined by a network of intimate and memorable outdoor spaces.
In this video, Partner Stephen Kieran and Associates Christopher Boskey and Melissa Clark discuss how the new buildings capture the classic Pacific Northwest landscape and the ways in which the architecture fosters a close-knit community.
