Thesis Studio Project 
Phil Holden, Instructor
Washington University - St. Louis

University buildings, student housing, Fraternity row and Columbia’s first suburb all occupy the melting pot neighborhood in Columbia known as East Campus.  This environmentally conscious project brings together the diverse community with a fitness center, restaurant, apartments and access to the Wilson Park trail.  

Cor-Ten steel and rammed-earth construction combine to slice and dig deep into the site so that views from the neighborhood to the creek 100 feet below are not obstructed.  At night, the public spaces glow like lanterns, drawing in the local residents and offering a space for cultural exchange.
