For Arizona State University’s renovation of an existing office and retail building near the Tempe campus, DFDG created flexible classrooms and computer labs for the growing School of Computing, Informatics & Decision Systems Engineering. Classrooms and computer labs were designed for multiple furniture layouts and collaborative learning based on the college’s requirement to maximize the use of every space. Programmed spaces are connected by casual gathering spaces that promote student and faculty social interaction. In addition, DFDG used the building’s distinctive geometry to create unique alcoves away from the daily student pedestrian traffic flow for private conversations.
“Although the Brickyard TI project was simple in concept, the execution was complex and required both creativity and attention to detail. Despite the challenge of an aggressive construction schedule, we were able to complete the project in time for the beginning of the semester class schedules. The DFDG team provided expert support throughout the design and construction process and I would recommend them to anyone with a complex project.”
