The new building rationalizes the existing complex's labyrinthine circulation system and acts as a conduit to connect Newhouse I and II on all floors. A simple bar, which houses classrooms, conference rooms and the mechanical and circulation core, is separated from the ribbon-like glass form by a three-story, skylit atrium. A space for informal and serendipitous encounters among faculty, students and staff, this new interstitial zone functions as the social and communal heart of the School. Light-filled, with a glass skin that changes dramatically in response to atmospheric conditions, the sinuous, undulating form boldly marks the gateway to the campus.
The Ennead Profile Series is comprised of books on single buildings, which together communicate the firm’s sensibilities. Corresponding to Ennead Architects’ philosophy of creating a singular and appropriate architectural response to the particular program, site, and client conditions, each book is, itself, a distinct reflection of the individual building and its makers.
The Designer of the building is deeply involved in the book’s design and evolution: the building is translated, shared and re-explored for the reader from the intimate perspective of the architect who designed it. The result is a presentation of architecture that is fresh, at times messy and never didactic.
