AUM Residence Hall,
With its retro colors and imposing stature, this college dorm at Auburn University’s Montgomery campus evokes all the fun and adventure of the college spirit. But its unique shape and style is not just about being asthetically inspiring. Everyone knows college students love waking up to a bright sunrise, which is why the angles and overhangs are designed all with the intent of avoiding the early morning light. The concept of wings radiating off a central branch also serve a dual purpose; not only do they avoid direct sunlight, but they also allow students to the avoid long, jammed corridors so typical of traditional dorms – thereby breaking their semester homes into smaller, friendlier units and giving students a quiet space to study.
