Trenton State College Dormitories

Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey) wanted to add dormitories attract more students and to handle their increased enrollment. The site provides an opportunity to link the neo-Georgian small-scale dormitories to the north to the larger scaled dormitories and dining facilities to the south.

The first scheme transitions from the lower buildings to the higher buildings by breaking down the scale of the buildings and provides a gateway between the two sets of dormitories. After a reduction in the program, the second scheme maintains the scale of the neo-Georgian dormitories and makes a connection with a passage between two buildings.
