Alumni Village, SUNY Purchase
Modular Construction. “Alumni Village”. SUNY Purchase, NY The program involved over 100 student apartments in 13 buildings of two-story wood modular construction, built off-site and delivered finished to campus. A total of 100,000 square feet of new construction is carefully integrated into a wooded, sloping site. The buildings terrace along contoured landscape and 18th century stone walls, with four units per floor facing in different directions to preserve a direct dialogue with adjacent forests and natural wetlands. The success of a first dormitory complex at Purchase College led to GKA’s inclusion on the first and second prize teams in the competition for this senior student housing complex on an alumni-controlled site. Completion: 2003 Budget: $14,000,000
