This student union at the University of Cincinnati was designed with several goals in mind. The University wanted a larger student center and more facilities, but were unwilling to completely replace the existing structure. The final design incorporates elements from the original Georgian style structure but also blends it with steel clad facades of the other buildings surrounding it. A huge bank of skylights makes sure that plenty of light is allowed to enter the main atrium space of the building.
