Creating an atmosphere that merges technology, learning, and living
Making electricity viable for use in technology was famed English scientist Michael Faraday's legacy. Named after Faraday, Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s new residence hall adds 259 beds for Juniors and Seniors—drawing inspiration from his groundbreaking discoveries.
Our design for Faraday Hall incorporates Worcester’s surrounding brick mill buildings and the campus’s tie to science and biotechnology. With the exterior composed of brick and metal panels in different colors and various depths and sizes, the building evokes both historic mills and modern circuit boards. Inside, the lobby is connected to the courtyard with tech suites on every floor. The interior design features details and materials that recall a modern laboratory, with open ceilings and exposed mechanical systems. A feature staircase constructed of stainless-steel cables represents one of Faraday's most noted findings, the Faraday Cage, a conductive mesh that channels electrical current around, but not through, the enclosure.
Residential units in the new hall are arranged in four-bed apartments with a full kitchen, living room, and full wireless access. Tech suites, a game room and lounge, and a sheltered courtyard integrate technology, living, and learning—providing students with opportunities for socialization and exchanging ideas with peers.
