Campus Master Planning

Campuses evolve, institutions transform, and building uses change. EE&K’s approach emphasizes the common areas – or “places” – and the design of buildings that contribute to and complement these places. We believe the challenge is to create places that can communicate an institution’s core mission and shape the experiences and memories of its users.

This sensibility has allowed us to establish compelling visions and enduring frameworks for growth for private colleges and public universities, as well as medical and research institutions. EE&K’s plans for campuses in pristine bucolic landscapes like Swarthmore College have shown how buildings can interact with the environment to create a transformative campus setting; our more recent work at urban campuses like Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx demonstrates how placemaking strategies can be innovatively applied to existing urban campuses.
