New Business Building

Overview

Designed by Perkins and Will, a recognized leader in higher education design and sustainable architecture, the building will feature technologically advanced classrooms and meeting spaces, breakout rooms for team projects, expanded space for career services, student reception areas, collaborative research centers, and additional graduate assistant work space. It will have a trading room on the first floor with Bloomberg terminals.

The Perkins and Will design draws much of its inspiration from the existing Edward Durell Stone-designed Academic Podium and residence halls that dominate the uptown campus. The new building preserves the modernist formality of the campus's orthogonal aesthetics in a more modern interpretation. The building's interior features floor-to-floor terracing for maximum circulation and natural lighting, with an exterior represented by both solid and transparent volumes.
