North Canton, Ohio
A signature center for interactive multimedia learning.
Bowen teamed with Cannon Design for the initial programming and design of a new signature building for the campus. We guided Walsh University through a process to help them reach a new place and vision. This approach complemented Walsh University’s goal of taking advantage of the global shift from a method of passive, unengaged education to one of interactive, receptive learning.
As funding for the project became available, we worked closely with the University to lead additional programming and redesign the building to increase the services and functions of this new center.
The Global Learning Center is a cornerstone academic building designed to support interdisciplinary research initiatives and problem solving through cutting edge technology, collaborative learning spaces, and open gathering spaces. The new building includes instructional spaces, a media library, community forum, chapel, video production lab, café, and administrative offices.
