The student dorm was located a block away from our campus in an up-in-coming part of the neighborhood. Pratt Institute’s expansion consisted of new administrative buildings and a student dorm. My project’s aim was to design a student dorm that provided students with a sense of openness and light. The dorms were divided into modules that were linked through circulation. Not only did this allow each dorm unit to have a small terrace space but it allowed the students to interact amongst each other and share spaces.
