SEATTLE-​​A new campus has been cre­ated for North­eastern University—Seattle. Designed by the Seattle office of inter­na­tional archi­tec­ture and design firm Perkins+Will, the University’s exten­sion campus is located in the flour­ishing South Lake Union neighborhood.

Although those involved could not dis­close any con­struc­tion price, we learned that the campus and its loca­tion are designed to “enhance the University’s hybrid grad­uate degree offer­ings by pro­viding local access to class­room courses.”Dan Seng, project man­ager at Perkins+Will, says that North­eastern University—Seattle wanted to “make a splash” with the design, and “create a space with gusto. “As a new insti­tu­tion on the Seattle scene, North­eastern wanted to make sure that the campus was a vibrant, notice­able and wel­coming addi­tion to the neighborhood.”
