Our design for the Student Union makes use of the historic structure to reconnect the heart of Pratt’s campus. The Student Union now features three interconnected levels of open areas that encourage students to use this building as a key campus circulation element. A large stepped platform acts as a piazza within the main volume, providing circulation to the mezzanine above as well as seating on and below, while open lounge areas are distributed throughout with enclosed meeting rooms on the perimeter and a video room tucked away below the reception platform in what was previously a pool.
