Perkins Eastman | Bowling Green State University

Bowling Green State University

Bowling Green, Ohio
As Executive Architect for Phase 1 of the Bowling Green State University Master Plan Implementation, Perkins Eastman is responsible for planning, programming, and concept design for the largest campus upgrade in the University’s history.

College of Business
Our design for the College of Business brings together business learning environments from both academia and corporate training in a building that connects to the campus context and creates a clear vision for BGSU’s future.

Technology commons, case-study method classrooms, class labs, and collaboration spaces organize around a central “living room” that will promote serendipitous meetings of friends and colleagues. In the evening this space transforms to into a scalable event and town hall lecture space for the College and University.

Highly transparent at the ground level, the building allows visual and physical access into and through the building, helping to connect the adjacent green space and student activity and dining venues. The building also features a vertical tower with a mixture of office and seminar space with sweeping views of the landscape.

Moseley Hall
The renovation of one of the campus’s first original buildings is the ideal opportunity for a strategic capital investment and growth of the university’s STEM program. Centrally located Moseley Hall will undergo a complete interior renovation from general classrooms to house flexible labs/classrooms designed to accommodate a range of introductory labs and classes including biology, anatomy and physiology, and a large connected chemistry learning laboratory. Each of these new STEM spaces is supplemented by dedicated collaboration surrounded by open teaching offices that allow learning to flourish in a social environment, yet provide quiet spaces for both teacher and student study.

Targeting LEED Silver, the design integrates robust energy-efficient systems including an overall sustainable approach to optimize the long-term operating costs of the university.
