Most architects insist that buildings have character, personalities even, much like individuals and communities. That is certainly true of Gardner-Webb’s Tucker Student Center, which GWU President Dr. Frank Bonner promised will be “the single-most impressive and most transformational building ever built on Gardner-Webb’s campus.” Complete with skylight ceilings and glass walls, open staircases and fresh-air balconies, the Tucker Student Center’s personality was designed to mirror that of Gardner-Webb’s community: open, relational, transparent and unique.
