Weber State University Shepherd Union
The renewed Shepherd Union transforms two buildings into one unified and interactive place by inserting a light-infused commons. This gracious connector allows students to continue to travel their well-worn campus path through an enlivened environment where information, study, food, and social opportunities abound. A vibrant campus crossroads, the new interior layout exemplifies transparency and flexibility, offering spaces that foster increased activity and inspire cross-program collaboration. The project is exemplary in how dollars were prioritized to create high-impact spaces, and economies were reserved for areas that functioned well.
