"Drury University Teaching Theater"

Colton Connor
Springfield, Missouri
Librarium-nominated project
Spring 2017

Identifying various groups of users from both the Drury community and the city, the building and the site were designed as per the Vision 2020 plans to expand the Jordan River valley into and though the southeast corner of campus. The project thus connects to the expanded park, while simultaneously maintaining direct access to the university and Drury Lane. The indoor formal theater, classrooms and support spaces, and the proposed outdoor entertainment space, thus become part of a unified academic/urban narrative.
