TALLEY STUDENT UNION

NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY

Raleigh, North Carolina

The Talley Student Center establishes a hub of activity that unifies and transforms the campus. This addition and renovation  creates a 'crossroad' - both literally and figuratively- that reflects and enhances a contemporary intersection of traditional academic boundaries through social activity. The overall form and tectonic expression of the three main parts are inspired by three domains of knowledge within NC State University - Natural Arts & Sciences, Technological Arts & Sciences, and Social Arts and Sciences. The significant indoor and outdoor public spaces encourage interaction. When students gather informally, ideas connect and combine - the engine of creativity and innovation.
