Melissa DelVecchio, partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, will lead an in-depth discussion on the topic of “Living on Campus: Student Housing Models” on Wednesday, July 8, at 6:00 pm Eastern, as part of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art’s Summer 2020 Project Forum series “Case Studies in New Classical & Traditional Design.”
Living on campus is central to the US college experience, but student housing poses a big challenge as schools work to make their campuses safe for students to return this fall. Ms. DelVecchio will present recent student housing models such as shared suites designed for the new residential colleges at Yale University; single bedrooms with shared social spaces designed for a living-learning college at Tsinghua University; and micro-apartment studies prepared for an unbuilt university housing project in Florida. The presentation will be followed by a conversation about the student housing models we might see in the future, particularly in response to COVID-19.
