The landscaping is in, furniture is on order and building systems are being checked. The end is near for Hayes Hall’s landmark restoration and renewal. School of Architecture and Planning administrative offices will begin re-occupancy in spring 2016, with classes to commence in fall 2016. A grand re-opening has been set for September 23, 2016.
If the new Hayes Hall is about anything, it’s about breaking down walls – literally and figuratively – to create an open, flexible space for dynamic learning and engagement. Perhaps no other space represents these principles better than the building’s “front door,” a two-story atrium and entry gallery.
