Health and Learning Center
Northern Arizona University

Flagstaff, Arizona

Award Winner - May 2012

The NAU Health and Learning Center is a fusion building that includes a 57,000-square-foot medical clinic, 70,000 square feet of classrooms, a 121,000-square-foot student recreation center and a 40,000-square-foot athletics component to replace most of the stadium.

The site is now a central student destination that links student life and academic experience and sees up to 1,700 students per hour pass through.
