Rasmussen College

Various Locations | Education

Overview

Rasmussen College and ISG have collaborated for multiple decades in the design of its academic facilities across the country, ensuring consistent aesthetics and student-friendly spaces.


Opportunity

With campuses across the country, Rasmussen College has had many renovation and new construction projects over the years, requiring architectural designs that create a cohesive aesthetic for its facilities.

Solution

For nearly twenty years, ISG has provided planning and design services for many of Rasmussen College's renovation and new construction projects, which has provided a cohesive architectural identity for the College's facilities across the country. With campuses located throughout the Midwest and Florida, each project is inspired by local culture, environment and architecture. From urban to rural settings, or as unique as Caribbean or Native American influences, each has found a place among these distinct campus locations through the use of building materials and interior design elements. The plan for each campus includes locating the public spaces such as computer labs, libraries, and student service centers located around the main entrance to campus. These spaces are designed to be interactive environments with bright colors, glass walls, and multiple seating arrangements used to foster group and individual study options, as well as places for social or academic conversation. Public areas are located at the entry of each campus with classrooms branching off into two wings to create a “V” shaped plan. The effective use of design elements provides a cohesive architectural identity for each campus while also showcasing each locale's unique character.
