Public-Private Partnerships at Work: New ARC at UIC - TOUR IS FULL!

UIC Academic and Residential Complex, 507 South Morgan Street, Chicago

This tour is full, and a waiting list has been started.

The Education KC continues to examine the latest trends in campus planning, capital project funding, and creation of novel learning environment typologies. Join us for a building tour and a review of the emerging trend toward “live-learn” educational eco-systems, and the opportunities and challenges of funding and designing academic campus projects using public/private partnership model. The Academic and Residential Complex (ARC) is a new mixed-use building designed by SCB that is composed of a two-story academic classroom building and a ten-story, 550-bed, undergraduate residence hall. The design aims to extend the learning environment into the living environment; create active learning environments of various scales; make learning spaces and amenities highly visible at the ground floor; expand programming opportunities to include outdoor spaces; reinforce connections along primary campus paths; and encourage faculty-student interactions.
