11 April, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Barnard College has chosen Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) to design a new teaching and learning facility on its Manhattan campus. The building will include a library, modern learning labs, academic offices, classrooms, conference facilities, café, and group study spaces.

A 24-person steering committee selected SOM for its history of innovative architecture, experience with similar academic projects, and commitment to women’s leadership in the firm. “Through our design process and engagement with the community, we hope to capture the spirit of Barnard as an institution of higher learning and to create a building that both reflects that spirit and gives it space to thrive,” Roger Duffy, SOM’s partner in charge of design for the project, said in a statement.
