特拉维斯圣人 - Stantec


Project Design Leader, Stantec

特拉维斯圣人 led the design team at the architectural firm Stantec. Sage and his colleagues, in collaboration with President 罗伯特K. 麦克马汉 and university staff, designed the building to balance timelessness and permanence. A shining example of architectural excellence, the design incorporates optimal flexibility for current and future teaching and learning, 合作, 和社交. Power and technology are woven throughout so that the building can easily transform to meet unforeseen program or space needs.

学习共享 Atrium Sculpture
学习共享 Atrium Mobile


Artist Marco Mahler's sculpture, suspended from the fourth floor to the first floor atrium of the 学习共享, is a visual representation of the building's interactive nature. It consists of two parts that visually correspond with each other and complete each other. Each part measures 25 feet in height and 16 feet in diameter.

Mahler designed the sculpture with interconnected balance structures throughout; the equilibrium of each part depends on the counterparts that are linked to it. Just like the 空间 in the 学习共享, it can be freely interpreted and reinterpreted.


Generous donors have made this revolutionary building experience possible. If you are interested in supporting an available named space in the 学习共享, 请拨打(810)762-9927.
