Wachovia Learning Center

Wachovia Learning Center

This corporate learning environment for Wachovia Bank was designed for a large spectrum of employees representing vastly different cultural and educational backgrounds. The space is used for training, collaboration and exploration, communicating the complexity of learning and reaching beyond the boundaries of the expected. Located in a1929 three-level historic structure, the top floor became part of the learning center. LS3P ASSOCIATES LTD.’s design solution was to deconstruct the paradigm of “school” with rows of desks into a more participatory, less intimidating setting. The historic portion of the project was moved across the street intact, awaited the completion of the adjacent buildings, and was then moved back within its original confines with the new buildings wrapping the old.
