situation analysis

The campus outgrew the existing Student Activities Center. More space was required to accommodate student organizations and functions. The existing student dining facilities at this location were at the end of their useful life and experiencing low levels of participation. The plan was to expand the building and pave the way for an altogether new and improved student life experience.

the challenge

The primary challenges were:

  1. Designing the student dining facility to overcome the monotony factor associated with regular use of student dining facilities, in general.
  2. Reaching agreement on the layout of the facility which offered a). the greatest level of convenience to the student and b). high levels of labor efficiency.
