A central atrium and communal meeting space serves as the heart of the School’s educational and social life. The space features an innovation center, a series of team work rooms, and an inventive take on the main staircase that provides areas for impromptu, serendipitous interaction.

The highly-efficient structure is LEED Gold Certified and includes classrooms, faculty offices and a large lecture hall across four stories and a partial basement that takes advantage of the sloping site.
