University of Oregon Student Creation Center expansion and renovation targets LEED Platinum

by ArchDaily - This two-phased Student Recreation Center addition knits together an existing Physical Education building, and an existing and undersized Student Recreation building on an extremely tight site. Two new free-zone entrances were created. A Great Hall entrance accommodates pedestrian traffic pattern from east of site. While a Main Street entrance accommodates traffic patterns from north of site. The two free-zones not only create the main circulation paths in the building, but also implement formal and informal social spaces for students.
