Bruner/Cott worked with Amherst College to create a student gathering and event space in a tactful but raw reworking of a historic 1925 McKim Mead & White steam plant. The Powerhouse at Amherst College has been studied to emphasize novel approaches to natural ventilation and waste heat recovery from existing utilities, and is featured in a brand new publication by Jonathan Couldson, Paul Roberts, and Isabelle Taylor.
University Trends: Contemporary Campus Design introduces the most significant, widespread and thought-provoking trends that are currently shaping the planning and architecture of higher education institutions across the world.
