This chapter presents the sustainability challenge for design of new projects on the North Campus, which was to expand and modernize its traditional arts, sciences, and student living facilities without running rampant over its historic architecture and landscapes. This was demanding because many of these functions were housed in older, sometimes obsolete buildings, such as old Venable, the chemistry building that was torn down to make way for the new Science Complex. Yet, if the University was not to lose its edge in its outstanding scientific research, it badly needed new labs and teaching facilities. If it was not to lose its edge in the performing arts, it badly needed new performance and teaching venues. If it was not to lose its edge as a desirable place for student life, it badly needed to update its dormitories and recreation areas. And it needed to do all of this while at the same time attacking its overdue needs for green buildings and sustainable landscapes.

Keywords:   sustainability challenge, North Campus, student living facilities, historic architecture, obsolete buildings, outstanding scientific research
