Northeastern University West Campus Residence Halls
Location: Boston, Massachusetts. Urban college campus

The design is based on other campus types, but relates to the city differently. This typology will surely be tested over time. What is already clear is that this campus does an extraordinary job of improving the street environment, creating physical connections between the city and the school, and giving the university a more distinctive public face.Read more at this project's website.
