Willamette University Ford Hall

Ford Hall at Willamette University incorporates state-of-the-art technologies while harmonizing with neighboring historic academic buildings that date back to 1867. An abundance of flexible collaboration spaces allow for personal and group interactions between faculty and students. We designed Ford Hall to be a 100-year building, employing brick, limestone, and copper as its principal materials and embedding sustainable design strategies throughout. Ford Hall is certified LEED Gold, meets the 2030 Challenge for energy reduction, and received a first-ever 2030 Challenge Design Award.


“Ford Hall has become an emblem, a manifestation, of our aspirations on campus. It really has proven to be more than we hoped for, in the sense that it’s a showpiece for our campus.”

— David Douglass,
Associate Dean of Campus Life, Willamette University
