The Ole Avenue Residence Hall is a new student life district for St. Olaf College in Minnesota, MN. While at Workshop Architects, we conceputalized and designed a environmental graphics packaged to create a home away from home for the students.
In addition to exterior building signage and illustrations for the study lounges, the highlight for the project was a three-story tile mural. The background of the wall features a pattern using ASCII text — the binary computer language — that spells out a the school rally cry, “Um! Yah! Yah!” and reflect the changing seasons.
