Re-imagining alumni engagement. 

Our mission is to use innovation and hospitality principles to create a new kind of space for Northeastern University's global alumni network. 

 

APPROACH

 
fwd BLUE LINE.png

Combine 21st century professional development with the power of physical space.

In partnership with Northeastern University, we set out to create a vision for the future of alumni engagement. Through our process, we rallied senior university leadership to support the concept, gathered alumni leaders to co-create a vision for the project, and researched and analyzed other innovative social spaces around the world. 

 

OUTPUT

A creative design for a chic downtown hub for alumni.

Inspired by stylish social venues and cutting-edge innovation spaces, this new space will be a chic downtown home for innovative, global Northeastern graduates—and a cutting-edge benchmark for alumni spaces around the world. The programming and design approach will be focused on supporting innovation, interdisciplinary exploration, experiential learning and alumni connections.
