The campus for unaccompanied minors is a link, facilitating children’s transitions to a new life in the US. These kids often come from stressful and dangerous environments, and it’s my goal for this campus to provide security and community. The campus is composed of two courtyards and three nodes. The nodes are the intake and medical building, the dining hall, and the chapel. I emphasized the experiential quality of the campus in the progression through space and materials. The progression through the campus reveals itself a step at a time, to help the children feel less overwhelmed. When a child enters each node, the view shows the next step. The wood structure is revealed in the design and the exterior, and interior walls are painted with calming bright colors. The wood columns are spaced 8 feet apart and support a roof that extends over the covered walkways the provide shade to both courtyards. Because everything is unfamiliar to these kids, the honest and understandable structure is less intimidating and makes the buildings feel more intimate.
