The LEED Platinum campus expansion for Otis College of Art and Design includes 95,600 gross square feet of new building construction and 7,500 square feet of landscape design, intended to establish a greater institutional identity for the College. The project is a joint-venture between Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects and Frederick Fisher & Partners (Ehrlich|Fisher). It provides more campus life and a stronger creative culture for its students by creating a physical environment that reaffirms the College’s pedagogical vision.
The architecture energizes the campus by encouraging physical and visual connections between buildings, collaborative learning and the cross-pollination of disciplines.
The smallest details of color and pattern have also been introduced strategically in ways that help tie elements together, creating a sense of place and community that reflect Otis’ quirky and playful character as a creative arts school.
