From the 2021 Educational Interiors Showcase: University of Texas Welcome Center

Nov. 29, 2021
The University of Texas Welcome Center received a Bronze citation for its design in the welcome centers category in American School & University's Educational Interiors Showcase.

The University of Texas Welcome Center in Austin, Texas., is the “front door” for prospective students and is designed to entertain, educate, and orient visitors while sharing the energy, spirit, and possibilities of the university. Situated beneath the brutalist main campus library, the center revolves around a central theater for introductory videos to tour groups. Educational displays are presented in a gallery setting—a timeline of the university’s history, information about its colleges and schools, and videos highlighting the dynamism of student life.
