Interior Design Students Reimagine Medfield State Hospital

Senior Interior Design students collaborated with other students from Construction Management, Architecture, Facilities Planning & Management, Mechanical Engineering, and Civil Engineering on an "EPIC Learning" project designing new use for the old Medfield State Hospital, which closed in 2003. Working together, students redesigned the old chapel building, as well as added new structures, as either a student union and library, a visitor's enter, a culinary center, or a medical center. Town of Medfield Officials met with the students and were able to view the final presentations at showcase held at the end of the spring semester.
