Bowling Green State University: Moseley Hall Renovation

Bowling Green, Ohio
As Executive Architect for Phase 1 of the Bowling Green State University Master Plan Implementation, Perkins Eastman is responsible for planning, programming, and concept design for the largest campus upgrade in the University’s history. At the core of this project is a collaborative visioning of the “next generation” educational platform that advances the University’s legacy of teacher-student interaction.

The renovation of Moseley Hall focuses on the transition from a general classroom building into a next-generation science teaching laboratory. Moseley Hall is one of the first original buildings on Bowling Green’s campus and its central location creates the ideal opportunity for a strategic capital investment and growth of the university’s STEM program. This 43,000 sf masonry building will undergo a complete interior renovation to house several “flexible” labs/classrooms, which are designed to accommodate a range of introductory labs and classes including Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology, and a large connected Chemistry learning laboratory. Each of these new STEM spaces is supplemented by dedicated collaboration zones to encourage informal learning and faculty -student interaction outside of the classroom environment. These collaborative zones are surrounded by open teaching offices that allow learning to flourish in a social environment yet provide quiet spaces for both teacher and student study.

This complete renovation and restoration is targeting LEED Silver and the design integrates robust energy-efficient systems including an overall sustainable approach to optimize the long-term operating costs of the university.
