The renovation of H.J. Patterson Hall has created a new home for the Office of International Affairs and a unique collection of foreign language and cultural programs for the University of Maryland in College Park (UMCP). It includes a complex array of ten international programs with space for both academic and student services. In bringing together these programs, the University is positioning H.J. Patterson Hall to become a new center for the University of Maryland’s growing international presence, with the defining goal of ‘Introducing Maryland to the world and introducing the world to Maryland.’
When designing the building layout, spaces of multiple scales were arranged to visibly and physically connect international departments that had been historically distinct and unconnected. Thus, offering opportunities for interaction between students and faculty, as well as engaging visitors in the breadth of international opportunities. A new two-story Global Lounge atrium is situated at the intersection of these departments, creating a dynamic and active international presence at the heart of the historic campus and the main entry of the building.
