In partnership with Northeastern University, we set out to create a vision for the future of alumni engagement: combining 21st century professional development with the power of physical space. 

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.

 
 

What we’ve accomplished:

 

1. 

Rallied senior university leadership to support the concept.

 

2. 

Gathered alumni leaders to co-create a vision for the project.

 

3. 

Researched and analyzed other innovative social spaces around the world.
