Northwestern University Common Spaces

In 2016, Northwestern University asked the Gensler team how they could systematically upgrade and unify their diverse interior common spaces. Although they are some of the most highly trafficked spaces on the campus and often at the forefront of prospective student and faculty tours, these spaces tend to function as leftover spaces. This strategic process covered 2 million square feet of space, 110 buildings and both an urban downtown campus and historic Evanston campus.

Knitting together heritage, modern and natural campus features, an integrated campus wayfinding solution was established for a leading girls’ IB School in downtown Toronto. The campus wayfinding program was the culmination of a renewal and brand identity associated with a Student Wellness Centre redefining the heart of the Campus and binding together the two isolated halves of this bucolic campus setting. The city’s extension of Mount Pleasant Road bisected the campus into two sides and the students cross via an elevated pedestrian bridge.

Batoche National Historic Site

As sesquicentennial celebrations unfold, it is important not to overlook Canada’s pre-Confederation and first nations heritage. This experiential design undertaking is aimed at strengthening ties between the Canadian Government and the Métis Nation—Saskatchewan. At the heart of this history is a land dispute, the source of inspiration for Form Media’s core concept. Our parti focuses on two opposing methods of landholding: a thoughtful linear and river-oriented allotment by a semi-nomadic turned agrarian people versus an unnatural grid-based system imposed on one nation by another.
