Gallaudet University Clerc Residence Hall

Washington, DC USA

An aging college residence hall hindered, rather than enhanced, the student life experience, and most of the halls had not been updated to accommodate advances in deaf resident’s life and safety needs. Dickinson + Partners along with ASG Architects and Deaf Space Group worked together to develop a concept design to provide new student apartments and a multimedia visual theater. The architectural language for the renovated hall was carefully developed to relate to the historic campus context and visual technology that are found around the campus.

The designs are completed but construction is on hold due to funding.
