"Organized as a welcoming crossroads for convening, the 10,000 sf
Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership at Kalamazoo College is
designed to support the Center's important mission and work in multiple
ways. Upon completion, it will be the world's first purpose-built
structure for social justice leadership development: a study, meeting,
and event space where students, faculty, visiting scholars, social
justice leaders, and members of the public will come together to engage
in conversation and activities aimed at creating a more just world.
Center is sited to engage its three immediate contexts—the college
campus, a residential neighborhood, and an old-growth grove of trees—by
drawing their topography into the building and outwardly projecting the
activities taking place within through transparent façades.
gently curving walls connecting these façades are constructed with wood
masonry, a low-carbon, highly insulating building method traditional to
the surrounding region, updated by Studio Gang to respond to the needs
of a contemporary institutional building for the first time."
