Clustered Quad is a proposal to combine several existing and new buildings on the Michigan State University (MSU) campus into a building “cluster” to form a strong sense of identity, centrality and community. The cluster is designed to accommodate several densely packed uses such as student housing, academic facilities, learning and leisure environments, shopping areas, and public spaces. The transformed grounds include a new landscaped quadrangle capable of hosting large, outdoor activities. The quad links facilities with improved accessibility and way finding. A repositioned large-volume library functions as a hub of collegiate activity with a learning commons and assembly venues for cultural engagement. Clustered Quad is a small city in itself, but is also designed to complement and help strengthen East Lansing’s college-oriented downtown and Main Street just across Grand River Avenue.
