The next in the ongoing series of AIA-SWO construction project tours features the expansion and renovation of Allen Hall on the University of Oregon campus. Home to the School of Journalism & Communication, the building is located between Lawrence and Friendly Halls and along the Old Campus Quad, Allen Hall was originally constructed in 1922 and first expanded in 1954. The new project renovates 39,000 square feet and adds 18,000 square feet of space.
Journalism has changed significantly over the last decade. The School’s new home strives to be cohesive and transparent with classrooms, offices, conference/seminar spaces, TV studio, public areas, and digital common studios that foster communication and collaboration. The revitalized Allen Hall will be able to provide meaningful education for the decades to come.
Construction started in June 2011 and is scheduled for completion this month.
