Project Detail

The Perkiomen School | Student Center

New Student Center | Pennsburg, Pennsylvania

Founded in 1875, Perkiomen is a highly innovative 6-12 independent school with an enrollment of 330 students, half of which board. The school affords the best of a liberal arts education while cultivating entrepreneurial spirit in its students. It promotes active inquiry and problem-solving, making education relevant and exportable to a future we cannot predict. 

The new Student Center is envisioned as a place where students apply and share what they’ve learned in music rehearsal rooms, video production studios, e-gaming suites, and a teaching kitchen. The new center will also be home to the Artificial Intelligence Institute, one of three institutes at Perkiomen that combine coursework with direct application in specific areas of focus. And, it will support the visual arts program with four visual arts studios including digital arts and advanced study. The building shape is defined by campus connections, including pathways through the building that connect campus buildings to one another.
