Participate in a Collegiate Architectural Survey

— The Collegiate Way website counts quite a few architects among its readers, and our mailing list includes subscribers from the noted architectural firms of Ayers Saint Gross, Ewing Cole, Hanbury Evans, Mackey Mitchell Associates, and Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbott.

Jane Wright of Hanbury Evans has been especially interested in residential college design, and with colleagues from her firm she has prepared an online survey to collect information about residential college structures, both material and social. All residential college members are invited to participate in this survey, and when the results have been compiled a summary will be made available to all the participants. Here are the details from Jane herself:

Hanbury Evans is a firm specializing in the planning and design of living/learning environments for colleges and universities. We are continually seeking and studying good physical and academic models of residential colleges to gain deeper knowledge of how to positively shape the place we call a residential college—in the multitude of forms that it takes. We would like to collect data on the program at your institution, and in return we would like to share with you a summary of the knowledge gained from the input received from all respondents. Each institution’s identity will be kept confidential from their responses. We invite you to participate by way of this page: HENV Survey of Residential College Architecture and Design. [Page is no longer available as of 19 December 2002. —RJO] As you review the questions, “college” refers to “residential college” or the “living/learning center unit” or whatever term you use at your institution. If you have any questions before you respond, please contact us at the email address below.
