2003 | Tempe, AZ | Higher Education | 274,000 sq ft | $58.6 million

The challenge was to design an educational facility that functions efficiently  as three buildings in one. Numerous departments, faculty offices, classrooms, and a Computer Commons were all to be combined while preserving the existing campus circulation paths.  Maintaining a clear ground plane for these paths led Jones Studio to push programs above and below grade. The main level is relieved of mass, allowing for a cross through breezeway inviting daylight into the computer commons. A variety of state of the art classrooms and lecture halls provide ASU with a multi-use educational facility that will continue to serve their enrollment far into the future.  A rooftop photovoltaic  system offsets energy use and emphasizes the University’s commitment to sustainability.  Every habitable space has access to natural light and is carefully designed to give students and educators a variety of study, social, public and private space.

In collaboration with Gensler.
