Gensler’s new Marion Anderson addition is envisioned as a truly forward-looking environment for business education. Four stories of learning, administrative, and event spaces are organized around an active, interaction-focused atrium environment offering space for students, faculty, administrators, and visitors to network. Users will find technologically enhanced, acoustically appropriate, adaptable spaces for current and evolving models of business education. The design creates enhanced visitor access, student services, and a new multi-purpose event space, and will interconnect the existing Anderson complex on two floors. With space at a premium on campus, the addition extends over an existing parking structure with a massing complimentary to existing buildings. The exterior envelope, designed by the original complex’s architect, ties fluidly into the existing complex while providing a bold new campus presence.
