Higher Education Design

Content. Placemaking. Collaboration. 

JCJ strives to create places that enhance the higher education learning experience by promoting an authentic approach to spatial experience, applying new technologies and materials and advocating for the highest level of sustainability and environmental quality.

We believe that working collaboratively with our clients and the consultant team is the key to addressing a project’s unique issues, needs and consequences. Rather than brining preconceived ideas to a project, we advocate for an exploratory and research-based design process that discovers what the architectural response should be. We aim to listen carefully and communicate strategic ideas and conceptual alternatives while building consensus at every stage of the design process, culminating in a vision that is highly functional, expresses the art and technology of building design and creates a place that will last and be loved.

The Firm's work has been presented at the Society of College and University Planners national and regional conferences.
