Washington University in St. Louis - Hillman Hall
site design | st. louis, mo
The new building Hillman Hall at the Brown School of Social Work was designed to advance the school’s mission for innovative graduate education. Andropogon teamed with Moore Ruble Yudell Architects to build a site that encourages the use of the outdoor environment and emphasizes health and wellness, diversity, energy efficiency, and environmantal sustainability. Active landscapes and rain gardens are used to capture, treat, and filter stormwater. Natural vegetation representative of the St. Louis region was planted to provide habitat and biodiversity and to minimize requirements for irrigation. Multiple gathering spaces and an ampitheater have been built to foster interaction and community building.
