Current Exhibit: Reinventing the Rathskeller

December 5 - January 8, 2017

Hours: Open during building hours

Interior Design students, in the University of Minnesota College of Design, examined the potential reuse of Landmark Center’s Rathskeller space as part of their Senior Design Studio course.  The students worked in teams of two and their final projects will be on display during normal building hours.

The students used architectural renderings, including to-scale models, of how the Landmark Center Rathskeller could be converted to various functions. Focusing on hospitality/restaurant uses, each team was free to determine what hospitality-oriented use would be optimal for the space, and provided rationale for their reasoning. Teams proposed competitive and innovative design solutions and possible tenants for the space. Students also designed corresponding elements to their proposals such as branding, vision, mission, and menu.
