About the event
Hill College is a Modern landmark designed by Eero Saarinen and built in 1960. The 200,000 s.f. building is five stories in height with a full basement, and accommodates 500 residents. Hill’s student rooms are arranged on the perimeter around a full height central atrium, with a dining facility at the lowest level, and a large number of lounges on all floors. Although initially designed for women, it now serves as a co-ed residence for first-year students.
This session focuses on the project through the post-construction lens and addresses the unique technical challenges that were solved by the designer, owner, and construction manager team in updating a landmark mid-century building.
