The Jim Meekison Student Lounge (Room 274, Level 2, 100 McCaul Street) is being re-designed and decorated. And it’s being done BY students, FOR students!

As part of their winter semester curriculum, Environmental Design students in Doreen Balabanoff and Marco Jacob’s ENVR 2B15: Colour and Form course were asked to submit proposals for a new look for the student lounge. They were required to consider the following:

The profile of space users; what spaces are currently available to students; what currently takes place in the student lounge; what could take place on campus given the appropriate space;
how space encourages interaction between students; how a space can be multifunctional; how a design can be sturdy, practical, flexible and affordable

From all of the submitted proposals, top designs will be chosen by a panel of representatives from the Student Union (OCADSU), Campus Life & Career Services, Facilities Management, and Doreen Balabanoff and Marco Jacob. The projects will be on display in the Great Hall for two days. Input from the wider campus community is welcome and will be considered in the selection of the winner. Cast your vote between 11 am and 2:30 pm. The winning project proposal will be implemented over the summer months and the successful student will have the satisfaction of overseeing the project. A “grand opening” celebration of the redesigned and improved space will be planned for September 2008.

This pilot project is intended to be the first in an annual effort to improve student space throughout the campus. It will send a positive message about student-designed and student-focused space to the OCAD community.

The project is funded by OCADSU and will be led with assistance from the Student Life & Support Services Committee.
