An Outgrowth of Curriculum
Before a line was ever drawn on the drafting table, architects of the Lillis Business Complex considered the flow and patterns of interaction needed to facilitate the cutting-edge curriculum of the Lundquist College of Business.
Planning began with needs assessments, focus groups, and interviews from faculty and student groups. SRG Partnership, the Portland-based architecture firm selected to design the building, soon realized that the challenge before them was to create a building that advanced the educational mission of the Lundquist College of Business and leveraged the collegial interactions between and among faculty and students.
The design that emerged from this process was a direct outgrowth of the college's educational philosophy—an entrepreneurial, hands-on curriculum that brings technology, team projects, and real-world business experience together inside and outside the classroom.
Architecturally designed to facilitate and encourage interaction between students and faculty and to maximize educational resources, the Lillis Business Complex is a superior learning environment.
