    NC A&T STATE UNIVERSITY NEW STUDENT CENTER

    When complete, this new Student Center will provide a comprehensive array of campus life services and will reinvigorate the physical and symbolic core of the campus of NCA&T State University.    The LEED Gold facility will redefine the “central hub” of the campus and serve as the heart of the social and academic life of the students of A&T while expressing the  history and spirit of “Aggie Pride”.  The diverse program includes student lounges, study and meeting spaces,  food venues, convenience store, student bookstore, post office, a formal ballroom overlooking the main green, multipurpose rooms and a range of student organization suites and administration support services. As of December of 2014, this project has received approval of 100% CDs and Phase 2 utilities and site preparation are underway.


    The constituent architectural components, which are rooted in the ‘idea’ of the program, have been defined at the conceptual level as:


    LANDSCAPE 
    The ‘landscape’ is a singular element that weaves though the building, stitching together the two campus greens and the public plazas that terminate them. This ground plane is envisioned as a key collective space of the program, emphasizing spatial overlap and the intertwining of building and landscape - it is at once, ‘place’ and ‘path’, interior and exterior.

    PLATES/TRAYS 
    The trays serve as the overarching framework for the programmatic elements of the project. Lifted above the landscape to the second and third levels, these elements bridge over the ground plane creating a highly transparent base that defines the entry, and in turn, presents a face to both the north and south greens.

    ELEVATED VOLUMES 
    Within the programmatic zones, there are several programmatic spaces that require both spatial and acoustical separation and also a more symbolic, formal legibility. These spaces, which include the ballroom, study rooms, the student organizations, and the marketplace dining, are elevated and have clear formal identity.

    THREAD 
    The thread is a singular element composed of vertical circulation and horizontal tray circulation spaces that weaves through the public spaces of the facility and stitches together, both vertically and horizontally, all of the otherwise disparate elements of the program. It serves as a key social and programmatic component of the project as well as a symbol of the unification of individual program elements.

     VEIL 
    The veil loosely envelops the entire facility to define the Center as a singular entity. Similar to the Thread, it unifies the diverse range of spaces and elements of this hybridized program. Composed of perforated metal and steel, it is a delicate and lightweight element is seen as a subtle representation of the spirit of progress and the importance of Technology in the development of NCA&T State University. Symbolically these two components- the Landscape and the Veil - unify all of the activities of the Student Center to define a singular, iconic entity.

    PLATES/TRAYS 
    The trays serve as the overarching framework for the programmatic elements of the project. Lifted above the landscape to the second and third levels, these elements bridge over the ground plane creating a highly transparent base that defines the entry, and in turn, presents a face to both the north and south greens.

    ELEVATED VOLUMES 
    Within the programmatic zones, there are several programmatic spaces that require both spatial and acoustical separation and also a more symbolic, formal legibility. These spaces, which include the ballroom, study rooms, the student organizations, and the marketplace dining, are elevated and have clear formal identity.

    THREAD 
    The thread is a singular element composed of vertical circulation and horizontal tray circulation spaces that weaves through the public spaces of the facility and stitches together, both vertically and horizontally, all of the otherwise disparate elements of the program. It serves as a key social and programmatic component of the project as well as a symbol of the unification of individual program elements.

     VEIL 
    The veil loosely envelops the entire facility to define the Center as a singular entity. Similar to the Thread, it unifies the diverse range of spaces and elements of this hybridized program. Composed of perforated metal and steel, it is a delicate and lightweight element is seen as a subtle representation of the spirit of progress and the importance of Technology in the development of NCA&T State University. Symbolically these two components- the Landscape and the Veil - unify all of the activities of the Student Center to define a singular, iconic entity.

    NC A&T STATE UNIVERSITY NEW STUDENT CENTER

    When complete, this new Student Center will provide a comprehensive array of campus life services and will reinvigorate the physical and symbolic core of the campus of NCA&T State University.    The LEED Gold facility will redefine the “central hub” of the campus and serve as the heart of the social and academic life of the students of A&T while expressing the  history and spirit of “Aggie Pride”.  The diverse program includes student lounges, study and meeting spaces,  food venues, convenience store, student bookstore, post office, a formal ballroom overlooking the main green, multipurpose rooms and a range of student organization suites and administration support services. As of December of 2014, this project has received approval of 100% CDs and Phase 2 utilities and site preparation are underway.


    The constituent architectural components, which are rooted in the ‘idea’ of the program, have been defined at the conceptual level as:


    LANDSCAPE 
    The ‘landscape’ is a singular element that weaves though the building, stitching together the two campus greens and the public plazas that terminate them. This ground plane is envisioned as a key collective space of the program, emphasizing spatial overlap and the intertwining of building and landscape - it is at once, ‘place’ and ‘path’, interior and exterior.

    PLATES/TRAYS
