The University of Portland is a classical campus comprised of a mixture of buildings from the 1920’s, the mid-century, and contemporary modern architecture. The campus landscape ties together this mixture of architecture and is an important feature for students and faculty. For this residence hall Shapiro Didway created a courtyard intended to be a gathering space for students, builds on the complexity of the campus plant inventory, and strives to be sustainable.
