Located in Chicago, United State, Adler School of Professional Psychology was designed by OWP/P | Cannon Design. The architects sought to reflect the school’s values in the design: progressive yet pragmatic, high-tech yet holistic, intellectually rigorous yet compassionate. In the fall, students welcomed to back to campus with spaces that are flooded by warm, natural light and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. The new campus will be connected by multi-floor open atriums that create a town square feel and serve as hubs to a mix of social, work, and academic areas. Students are the priority in the new space, with the perimeter reserved for classrooms and work areas, while faculty and administrative offices will be located in the interior. With their skyline views, the student work areas are intended to inspire students to look out across the city, encourage inquiry and prompt creativity.
The new campus doubles the current classroom and computing spaces and includes high-tech smart boards. Located in the southeast corner of the new campus with prime views of the city, the 60-seat library is twice the size of the current library space, and will include areas for individual, small-group and larger collaborative efforts. Adjacent to the library, a computer teaching lab will be equipped with new computer work stations.
