University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St Louis (RAS)

LJC understood that the new Recreation and Student (RAS) Center was a key to growing its student population by reinvesting in the university’s urban campus located in a growing academic medical center. The vibrant, walkable, and transit-oriented CWE neighborhood supports the student-oriented building as a model of identity for the campus. A hub of collaborative spaces connected by a vertical landscape of themed stairs integrates diverse programs at the corner in an expression of visible activity. This public space is wrapped in glass as part of a strategic gradation of materials that define the skin of the building. This iconic addition to campus has led to increased enrollment and investment in the program.
