New Facility for the College of Architecture and Environmental Design
The College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) is one of Kent State University’s signature programs. Presently, the program is fractionalized with classroom, studios and faculty offices scattered across the campus in three separate structures that do not reflect the caliber of the program. Taylor Hall is the base of CAED's operations and its location within the May Fourth Historic District makes it impossible to modify the existing building in a constructive way; therefore, the university has set the construction of a new building for the program as a facility improvement priority. The proposed building is programmed at approximately 120,000 SF and will include studios, classrooms, administrative offices and various shop and research spaces. The new building will be located on the Esplanade extension, the path between South Lincoln Street and Haymaker Parkway to connect the Kent Campus with downtown Kent. The connection of the building to its surrounding site will be an important part of the design and the project will include all sidewalks, parking lots, landscaping and utility extensions to the site and building. The university has identified three primary drivers of project: the building must be architecturally significant and representative of the stature of the CAED program; the building must be a model of sustainable design and energy performance; and the building must be affordable while accommodating all of the programmatic needs of the college. Richard L. Bowen + Associates, Inc., in collaboration with Weiss/Manfredi, is serving as the Architect of Record for this project. Gilbane Building Company is serving as the Construction Manager at Risk.
