What can we do to revitalize the Institute for Astronomy for more interactions between the users: faculty, staff, students, and the public?

The Institute for Astronomy was seeking architectural design services to re-envision their existing building on Woodlawn Drive as a 21st century workplace: one that facilitates collaboration, informal gathering, flexibility over time, and highest and best use of the existing spaces for innovation and learning. This design exploration focused on re-envisioning underutilized spaces using minimal and budget conscious design moves.
