The University of Oregon Area Studies address three prospective sites on the University of Oregon Eugene campus, each for a specific use and program: a women’s softball stadium; a science building, and a 500-bed residence hall. The expert opinions of the sites selected based on prior planning studies further refined the site selection process and preliminarily identified planning considerations for each site. The area studies explored each site’s ability to accommodate the proposed program for several growth scenarios and identified how to best reflect current and future campus planning goals to contribute to the campus’s beauty and function. The seven-week process began and ended with work sessions with campus committees to identify principles and unique characteristics of the campus. The illustrations above are from the residence hall area study.
