Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture and the University of Southern Indiana’s University Center expansion is one of seven college unions to receive the Association of College Unions International Facility Design Award of Excellence.
“The goal of the University Center expansion project was to create ‘a campus landmark’ that both serves students well, and is a built testament to the essence of high-quality-design, fosters new ways of thinking about buildings and the campus, and grounds the university firmly in its regional origins as it moves onto the national stage”, said Mark Rozewski, USI vice president for Finance and Administration. “I’m pleased USI won this national recognition, but even more pleased with our new university center. The center is a built reminder to be open to new ways of thinking, and that’s a message that every university should pass onto the next generation.”
One of the features of the expansion is the conical tower, which is the centerpiece of the project, highlighting the campus skyline.
The University Center expansion opened in 2011.
