The project encompasses the renovation of three existing buildings utilized by the School of Art and Architecture and provides a new 93,300-square-foot facility that houses a new library, faculty and administration offices, sculpture studios and a new art gallery for the University. Design is utilized to unite the various physical and programmatic components of the project into a unified interdisciplinary educational center.
