Sheila Johnson Design Center

Direct Link

Upper Lobby

The 25,000-square-foot Sheila Johnson Design Center is a thoroughly modern facility housed in a building that recalls the college’s historic dairy barn. The silhouette of the former dairy barn is now framed in steel and glass to capture the ideal northern light. The commanding building welcomes visitors with a dramatic vaulted and double-height entrance atrium and a gallery that displays students' work. A wood shop where students build small-scale models of wood buildings and fabricate shelter projects for class, and a digital production and photo area soon to be equipped with universal laser cutter and rapid prototyping machines, are cutting-edge elements that further add to the 21st century charm of the environment.
