Team appointed for Drury University masterplan
Architecture and urban design firm Cooper Robertson has been appointed to produce a masterplan for the growing campus of Drury University in Springfield, Missouri.
The initiative is part of a three-pronged action plan under way at the 3,570-student, private liberal arts college. The school is undertaking the new masterplan, repositioning undergraduate degree programs, and initiating a campaign to fund new buildings and improvements to mark its 150th anniversary.
"We are delighted to have the involvement of Cooper Robertson with our leadership team and other experts supporting Drury University's new initiatives," said Drury University's president, Dr J Timothy Cloyd. "As Drury moves into a new era, it will be crucial for us to craft a vision of our physical campus that not only reflects our academic values, but enhances our profile regionally and nationally."
As a first step, in coming weeks Drury University will host a charrette - its first of several collaborative idea-sessions to inform the master-planning process - with campus leaders and community groups. "In this process, the University and other stakeholders become part of the design team, taking part in a shared design vision and exploration," says John Kirk, a partner with Cooper Robertson.
"The new campus master plan will help make lasting, memorable connections, over time weaving the campus together, allowing for cohesive expansion, and connecting to surrounding communities," says Kirk. "This will help make Drury University a world-class destination, school of choice and memorable place for all who live and visit here."
