Colleges & Universities PROJECT OF DISTINCTION OUTSTANDING DESIGN + ARCHITECTURE IN EDUCATION 12 Adler School of Professional Psychology ADLER SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGY, CHICAGO, ILL. C REATING THE ADLER SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGY'S $10 million, 101,600-square-foot campus, in the heart of Chicago's Loop, re- quired the demolition and build-out of a private ground-floor entrance lobby and the upper two floors of 17 North Dearborn. To determine the balance between community and personal spaces in the initial 55,000 square feet of program- ming, Cannon Design led a process that included a 75-person visioning session, dozens of individual interviews with representatives of the school's eight departments and constituency groups, and meetings with the Adler School's executive team. With more than twice the square footage of the Adler School's former home, the new campus reflects the Adler School's culture of interaction and community ser- vice while offering students ample space for quiet study and reflection. The two floors offer 27 classrooms with state-of-the- art audiovisual technology, a library commons that seats 70 and includes dedicated space for instructional support, Steelcase media:scape collaborative workspaces, a wellness studio for yoga and meditation and administrative offices. Two-story open atriums with grand staircases connect the two floors at each end. The project achieved LEED Gold certification in 2011.
