Project Statement: Project Statement ED4669 The John Paul II Newman Center accommodates the Catholic student population with a faith-based environment for living and nurturing spiritual growth. The design translates a traditional monastery into a contemporary student life center. A refectory provides a multi-purpose space for dining and large events. Priests reside in the rectory while staff occupy the offices. The dormitory accommodates 164 students with one, two and four-bedroom apartments and the library supports learning. Continuing the monastery narrative, all functions revolve around the courtyard. Distributed on each floor are lounges and study rooms. Private chapels at the end of corridors provide refuge. Two axes refine programmatic relationships . The liturgical axis, oriented east-west, connects the library to the oratory, symbolizing the journey from the pursuit of academic knowledge to transcendence as the exposition of faith. The library’s fireplace initiates the journey and crescendos at the tabernacle. The ceremonial axis guides visitors through the bell tower and culminates at the statue niche dedicated to Mary. A limestone threshold defines passage into the sanctuary. Inside the use of limestone continues, referencing the stone of JPII’s home country Poland. Its stoic presence is offset by the richness of white oak. Custom-designed liturgical appointments further accent the interior.
