Cornell - Human Ecology Building
The new 87,000 sf Human Ecology Building at Cornell University's College of Human Ecology is designed to accommodate the needs of several departments, chiefly Design & Environmental Analysis and Textiles & Apparel. Designed by Gruzen Samton, the new building provides state of the art labs, office and support facilities enhancing the student experience and fostering creative research. A multipurpose wing, the Commons, connects existing College of Human Ecology buildings with the new lab and office structure and provides a forum for students and faculty from various departments to meet and engage in impromptu discussions, encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas and research.
The project was completed in October 2011.
