Center for Global Citizenship


Renovation of the West Pine Gym, located in the heart of the Frost campus, accommodates the University's growing international reputation by bringing the Office of International Services, the International Studies Program and the English as a Second Language Program under one roof, as well as the Cross Cultural Center, the Center for Sustainability, the Center for Service and Community Engagement, and the Center for Intercultural Studies.

Design Intent

The overall design concept was to leverage the beauty and unique qualities of the existing structure. To increase the indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency, previously boarded up windows located at the top of the bowl were exposed to allow natural lighting into the common area. Water conservation and waste reduction were also kept in mind through installation of low flow fixtures in restrooms and water bottle filling stations throughout. The highlight of the renovation was the blending of old and new through the restoration of the gym's hardwood flooring which transformed the space into a student commons with a 1,000-seat adaptable auditorium with multi-screen technology.
