Size: 250,000 sf master plan
Location: Hanover, New Hampshire

The Arts Master Plan at Dartmouth College entailed an extensive programming effort for sixteen academic departments, the Hopkins Center for the Performing Arts, the Hood Museum of Art, and many campus wide services. A strategy for consolidating the arts programs on the southern edge of campus through multiple phases of construction was delineated to include swing space provisions and infrastructural upgrades. 

The planned arts complex connects the central campus green to the surrounding town with a sequence of intimate sculpture gardens and landscaped walkways. New space is created through building additions on the campus edge creating a new welcome face to the town.
