Trend Forecast: Dorms as Living and Learning Spaces

June 30, 2015

Learn how this OSU facility supports students

College living quarters are no longer a space for students to crash; They can cultivate and seek counsel there too. YGH Architecture is conducting a conceptual design study for McNary Residence Hall at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Ore. The project entails reconfiguring existing dining areas into culinary instruction spaces and other hands-on learning environments.

Designated a health and well-being themed “Living-Learning Community,” McNary Hall is described by OSU as “a space for students to connect with other students who are excited about health and science, especially the intersection of these fields and particularly with the perspective of improving communities across Oregon and beyond."
