UW Gould Hall Digital Commons

The Digital Commons replaces 6,600 sq ft of unused storage space in Gould Hall’s sub-basement with unconventional, flexible, instructional space meeting a College-wide need. The design process reflects the College’s collegiality by inviting students and faculty into the design conversation about the character of learning space in the digital age. The design includes the range of perspectives on a new learning environment, balancing flexibility and structure and creating informal learning spheres.
