Kathleen Kavanaugh, Programming Consultant, asked the attendees their thoughts about the Site, the Building, and the Role the Building Should Play for MSU. Among the responses:

  • Consider the green space.
  • Removed car parking spaces should be relocated.
  • Bike parking area.
  • The building needs to assist in developing partnerships with other disciplines and community businesses.
  • Windows are a serious problem for the AV use inside the auditorium space: Auditoriums don’t have to be windowless.MSU CoB meeting- open house
  • Natural light, views and windows area priority.
  • Transparency in this building, seeing out and seeing in: fosters professionalism.
  • Good transitions coming out of the teaching spaces: as much positive interactions with the student walking out of class as inside class.
  • Make breakout spaces in buildings for coffee and sandwiches: important for students and staff to have positive interactions.
