Based on a group master plan analysis, the historic armory building was identified as an underused space at the center of Drexel's campus. The adaptive reuse project injects the historic structure with a diverse program and creates the new heart beat of Drexel’s campus. The program includes various flexible spaces designed for the different facets of collaborative work. Designed for a 24 hour program, the building will literally light up the core of campus to contribute to Drexel University’s tradition of innovation.
