Davenport University, Donald W. Maine College of Business
Grand Rapids, Michigan

The new Donald W. Maine College of Business building uses the design tenets found in progressive corporate environments, such as flexibility and collaboration, to create energetic spaces that support the learning process. The building’s design is meant to reflect the corporate business environment students will experience when they graduate. Integrated Architecture crafted this unique design with the input of the university’s faculty and business students. The building features more than 20 classrooms; a central hub for students to study and interact; an open-office environment for faculty members; and a capacity to house up to three companies in the business accelerator program within the Center for Entrepreneurship. The University planned the educational spaces as an adaptable environment that can easily adjust from class to class to support traditional lecture style learning as well as interactive team project efforts. The project began with a master planning process that determined the college’s optimal location in relation to existing and future campus context.
