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

LJC understood that the new Recreation and Student (RAS) Center was key to growing its student population by reinvesting in the university’s urban campus in a growing academic medical center. The vibrant, walkable, and transit-oriented CWE neighborhood supports the student-oriented building as a campus identity model. A hub of collaborative spaces connected by a vertical landscape of themed stairs integrates diverse programs at the corner to express 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 increased enrollment and investment in the program.
