Architecture should influence life by introducing design that is active with the life of a site and engages the user in a simplistic manner. Architecture can then obtain the interaction that is needed in order to build a living space. More then just making a building energy efficient designs should give meaning to the user's life and reveal a connection to the systems of life. A student housing complex for the University of Texas at San Antonio Downtown campus that responds to the activity of life in its university and urban context. This complex is part of the overall growth of the downtown campus that is looking to serve the needs of a growing region. The new residence halls needs to house 270 beds plus other related activates. The site is located directly west of downtown San Antonio on a site sloted for the future growth of the University of Texas at San Antonio Downtown campus. This site is to the west of the existing campus across Frio Street and would almost double the size of the campus.
