It is an endowed institute, serving the Brown community with teaching, research, fieldwork, and classroom studies for both graduates and undergraduates.

This project restores Rhode Island Hall’s exterior, and entirely renovates its interior. The extensive spatial and structural reconfiguration allows us to reconsider the ways that daylight was delivered throughout the project. Translucency of both glass and wood creates varying levels of transparency and daylight between program spaces, encouraging a more interactive dialogue between faculty and student.

The contemporary intervention within this historic shell challenges the notion of archaeology as a conservative and dusty pursuit, and supports the mission of the Joukowsky Institute as a progressive leader in the field of archaeology. The transformation of Rhode Island Hall as the home for the new Joukowsky Institute is a significant part of Brown’s new Plan for Academic Enrichment.

The project is a leading example of the University’s approach to reanimating its historic building fabric and also demonstrates its commitment to sustainability. Rhode Island Hall is the first building at Brown to be certified LEED Gold for New Construction.
