Design at Work: Wright State University


Wright State University selected architect Robert Maschke of Cleveland-based Robert Maschke Architects to redesign and oversee the construction of its new Student Enrollment Center, which recently reopened in the heart of campus. This once dark building has been transformed into a light, dynamic and inviting space.

“We were commissioned to give the university a cutting-edge image that would attract new students and keep current enrollment numbers high,” said Maschke. “These students want to enjoy convenient and cozy socializing areas.”

Maschke’s architectural design is so sharp a contrast to the former imagery of the enrollment center that one would hardly recognize the building shell and structural system remain unchanged. Most striking is the delicate juxtaposition of rectilinear angles, surfaces and spaces against softer, curvilinear edges.
