EDUCATION

SUNY SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT

BINGHAMTON, NY  USA

As new programs developed on the Binghamton campus in the State University of New York system, so did the conversations of educational environments and campus context.  Leadership was determined to find a new voice and presence within the SUNY system of universities.  In this project, we were tasked with creating a facility to house a variety of new educational programs, embracing the individuality and uniqueness of each program, while providing a progressive image that respects the context, yet challenges its architecture.

The design responded to this challenge by a creating an impressive student gateway to the campus, inspiring a new energy for this diverse community.  Two dynamic building volumes house the new School of Management, School of Nursing, and School of Educational and Human Development, providing a wonderful learning environment and expressing a soaring spirit of higher education.
