Student Union Wins Award for Design
The Student Union at UIS has received a design award from the American Institute of Architects. The building was designed by Workshop Architects of Milwaukee, Wisconsin & Dewberry of Peoria, Illinois. From the design jury comments:
"The project offers a modern, fresh and spacious interactive space. The proposed program with flexible work spaces and overlapped activities seems very appropriate as a social catalyst for students on campus…. The building is a striking, inviting sculptural form. Its plan is well organized and the volumes within the building – for student government and the Starbucks pavilion, are nicely scaled and inviting.”
Many thanks to the donors who helped to bring this "inviting" building to campus.
