University of Massachusetts Lowell Dormitory proposal | Collaboration with DiMella Shaffer
University of Massachusetts
500 bed dormitory
A new dormitory to house 500 students on the University of Massachusetts campus in Lowell. The proposal seeks to establish a distinct pedestrian corridor by uniting the north and south campuses with its segregated and expanding east campus. Taking cues from local mill buildings, the dorm is expressed as a sinuous masonry form with a raised central quadrangle concealing the parking below.
