Planning principles

Planning Principles

  • Reinforcing, invigorating, and transforming the physical center of the campus to be the intellectual heart of Rhodes.

  • Encouraging student and faculty interaction through building space design.

  • Enhancing the pedestrian experience by removing asphalt and parking from the inner campus.

  • Enriching the architectural experience by honoring our historic commitment to gothic design, Oxonian quadrangles, enhanced landscape and open space.

  • Designing a building flexible enough to meet the needs of future generations of students, capable of adapting readily to rapid changes in technology, the ways students learn and pedagogy.

  • Sustaining a building for the ages by the selection of environmentally sensitive building materials and construction practices thereby promoting efficiency in energy, resource use and maintenance.
