Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign in partnership with EDA Architects have created a unique environment for student living, learning and working 

Opening in autumn 2016, the Lassonde Studios, part of the University of Utah Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, will offer a unique facility for student entrepreneurs, including 400 residences, with a 20,000 sq foot ‘garage’, where students will be able to attend events, build prototypes, enter competitions, launch their businesses, or just socialise and network. It will be a hub for young innovators, makers and creative business leaders of the future 

The project was designed to meet two campus needs, the creation of a flexible open social space and compact student housing. 

There will also be some unusual and quirky student ‘living pods’. The pods design takes into consideration the amount of space needed for sleeping, storage, getting dressed, quiet study and relaxing. Demountable book shelves, a wardrobe, medicine cabinet, and a flat panel display are among amenities included in the sleeping pod. Students can choose from three living types, custom moveable living pods, shared loft suites for groups, or traditional single or double rooms for maximum privacy.

The idea recognises that innovation is an activity that is fuelled by the activities of life. By combining this inone space, it provides a living-learning environment that fosters academic excellence in interactive, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary subjects.
