This competition-winning design is the centerpiece of the first phase of Fordham University's 15-year master plan for its
Lincoln Center campus. The project consists of a 22-story building, clad in a curtain wall of architectural precast panels, metal, and glass and shaped with a series of undulating arcs to make an engaging gesture toward Lincoln Center while providing a distinctive identity for the Law School. The latter will be housed in the lower nine stories, with a residential tower accommodating 430 undergraduates rising above.
When completed in 2014, the 468,000-square-foot building will more
than double the Law School's current program, event, and office space. The structure, which is designed for LEED Silver certification, will feature a two-story atrium, a moot and trial court facility, and a 562,000-volume law library. The Residence Hall will contain primarily double rooms with shared baths, and apartments for faculty and resident directors will be distributed throughout.
Moot and Trial Courtrooms, Law Library, Law Clinic, tiered classrooms, event spaces, student and faculty dining, faculty and staff offices.
