The location of the ARCH is at an important crossroads of the campus, the intersection of Locust Walk and 36 th Streets. Constructed in 1927-29 of the late-Gothic Revival period, it has richly detailed facade and interior. The building currently houses three cultural centers, administrative offices, classroom, performance, and meeting space. By restoring the ARCH, the building will serve as another focal point for student activities.
The design team selected will be responsible for assessing the programmatic needs in relationship to the space, as well as conducting a feasibility study for the renovation of the interior and exterior of the ARCH building. The feasibility study will include analysis of the auditorium, basement, Crest Room, third floor meeting spaces, electrical and mechanical systems, facade repairs, and life safety system upgrades.
