This proposed addition to St. Thomas More Newman Center was designed to meet the multi-dimensional needs of Catholic students at the University of Missouri in Columbia. The curve and height of the building’s front elevation compliment the nearby business school and symbolize the embrace of the Church for her people. In addition to a large gathering space, the addition includes offices for Center volunteers and employees. An expanded library space features individual study carrels positioned along a second-story window overlooking campus. Symbolically and physically, the vantage reinforces the continuity of students’ spiritual and academic lives. This project is currently on hold pending funding.
