The goal for Lesley University was to create a new dedicated animation studio and a 130-seat screening room, with new cutting edge studios for all forms of animation, from stop-motion to a new Virtual Effects studio. PCA's design accomplishes this and more, giving the dispersed animation students a true home.
American School & University Magazine lauded the space, awarding a Special Citation in their Summer 2020 Educational Interiors Showcase. AS&U's Jury stated that the design solution showed an "Inspiring use of common materials in unexpected ways. Seems to fit the brief and do exactly what it set out to do."
