Date Posted: 04.16.2018

Chatham University Eden Hall Campus has received the 2018 Education Facility Design Award of Excellence from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE). The national awards program recognizes state-of-the-art design of schools and learning centers that enhance modern pedagogy.

The awards jury described the campus design as “simple, elegant, and transformative aesthetically and behaviorally. This is smart organization and consistent language that provides the seeds for a fully sustainable campus.”

The new satellite campus is designed as a living lab to support research into topics including sustainable food systems, water and air quality, and the social systems they support with a curriculum that encourages hands-on experiential learning so that graduates gain experience tackling real-world problems and creating positive results.
