Alternative Campus of the Future Research Group

Directors: Raymond Yeh, FAIA and Jim Dator
Room: 304

The Alternative Campus of the Future Research Group has been established since August 2008. Students and faculty affiliated with the Hawai‘i Research Center for Futures Studies, and students and faculty affiliated with the School of Architecture of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa have been engaged in a project called "Campuses 2060". The project explores the history, present situation, and alternative futures of institutions of higher education worldwide according to the overall "future" these institutions find themselves in, and the specific mission, participants, resources, pedagogy, and physical campus that they develop in response to each future. There have been three public presentations of their ongoing work so far. While the initial focus has been on the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, it is the intention of the project, still ongoing, to become a global resource for ideas and information about the futures of higher education anywhere.
