A Message to the Committee Dear committee and President Schlesinger, We are Stanley He and Rachel Kam. We have a few thoughts about the Sasaki master plan for the future of Babson. We see the new Horn façade and the HUB building as a great opportunity to dramatically transform people’s lives on campus and how people see Babson as an entrepreneurial environment. In order to make the most out of this opportunity, we want to express our critiques about the current collision spaces, group study areas, and classrooms on campus so the new building won’t be the same again. Regarding collision space, we think one of the most popular one now (Horn library first floor) fail as an environment that supports creativity and innovation. This is caused by its non-modern furniture and layout, and most importantly it is a highly stressful area. Regarding group study area, we see the same problem of the space not encouraging creativity, which can be solved by switching out the older and duller furniture

Unformatted text preview: Babson is using now. We also saw a high demand for group study rooms which Sasaki master plan effectively addressed through the creation of Horn facade and the HUB building. Regarding classrooms, we think the layout should be subject to the nature of the class. We think discussion focused and lectured focused classes should have different layouts. We also believe it is crucial to treat common rooms in dorm buildings as collision spaces. Being a frequently accessed area it could be utilized much more. In addition we have a specific design suggestion for the HUB building, to have a glass dome on top with balcony surrounding it using the concepts of cantilever. We think it will serve as a collision space where students can free the most relaxed and unobstructed. It will also be low on energy consumption because the glass is excellent for water proofing, thermal insulating and letting in natural lights. Sincerely Stanley and Rachel...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
