CENTER FOR DESIGN RESEARCH (CDR)
Rockhill and Associates was the architect of record for this Studio 804 project.
Located on the historic Chamney Dairy Farm in Lawrence, Kansas, the CDR is a response to the emerging culture of sustainability and its support at the University of Kansas. In congruence with the center's mission, which is to provide a location for interdisciplinary work between multiple schools, the new building provides a facility that aids in the education of the university and community on sustainable strategies, material innovation and building efficiency. The building provides a space for professional collaboration and community education while displaying a wide range of sustainable strategies. In doing so, it showcases the advances of green building technologies and products, serving as a standard for the future development of the University and CDR.
