Inspired by the close-knit Duke community, the Grimshaw scheme will provide spaces where faculty, students, staff, and alumni can meet one another, for either planned or impromptu interactions. The design aims for careful attention to sustainability and intelligent use of resources that will reinforce Duke’s holistic approach to student lifestyles and well-being. Grimshaw will embark on a sensitive integration of new contemporary architecture in harmony with careful preservation of the historic structure.
The project will expand dining facilities into a multi-venue space with additional capacity for learning facilities and events. Innovative energy and engineering solutions will work in concert with programming development to deliver a solution that sustains the natural, social and built environment.
Grimshaw will work with Duke faculty, staff and students to foster spontaneous interaction and clarify circulation while celebrating the union’s original architectural character. The project is poised to establish the West Campus Union as an exciting campus hub for student and community engagement. Construction on the project is expected to begin in the summer of 2013.
