This 325,000 SF complex is an extension of the academic core into a relatively underdeveloped part of the campus. The steeply sloped 20-acre site adjoins the academic core to its east and is bounded on the west by a meandering tree-lined creek. With a style related to the Romanesque brick-and-stone Royce Hall, the buildings are limited to four stories and separated into six connected buildings, which are linked together by paths, stairs and bridges, and focused on a central courtyard. The facility houses large classrooms with smaller break-out rooms that surround the circular court. Administrative services, executive education and the library are housed in separate wings. A 300-seat lecture hall presents a landmark entry feature from the main campus. Architectural services were provided in collaboration with Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
