A Decade of Renewal
We're building the next generation of facilities at UMass Amherst --classrooms, laboratories, residence halls, dining commons and recreation venues. Take a look at what we've accomplished, what we're working on today, and what the future holds in Campus Planning's informative presentation.
This month's featured project:
The Design Building is being built on the southern portion of parking Lot 62 north of the Studio Arts Building and will house academic programs including Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning, the Department of Architecture, and the Building Construction Technology program. The DB is intended to showcase integrated design through a stacked courtyard surrounded by studios, classrooms, workshops, and offices. Check out the video on the DB's innovative construction from the UMass Office of News and Media Relations.
