Tykeson Hall College and Careers Building – University of Oregon College of Arts and Sciences
Institutional/Academic - Arts and Sciences
OFFICE 52 Architecture is designing the new Tykeson Hall College and Careers Building for the prestigious College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oregon. Prominently sited in the heart of the University of Oregon campus, this new 56,000 SF building will bring together and integrate a multitude of pertinent resources dedicated to educational excellence, academic advising, career services, community outreach and administrative leadership. Our design approach rethinks conventional and contemporary models of spaces for liberal arts education and student success to create a state-of-the-art learning environment. As such, Tykeson Hall will be the new cultural and academic center with a vibrant, student-focused hub for the College of Arts and Sciences. With a focus on the transformative power of materials within an economy of means, our approach is about how the materials used reflects the union and weaving of the traditional campus lexicon with an unprecedented and new spatial model to form a transformative architectural experience within the university setting.
