The Rowan University School of Engineering building extends the campus fabric, creates a sense of arrival at the campus edge, enhances the student circulation pathways to the heart of the university and is highly visible as a testimony to Henry and Betty Rowan.
The design of the building was selected for its ability to engage the overall campus while simultaneously establishing its own domain and identity. While romantic in composition, it is rigorously bound to the strong contextual geometries established by the orthogonal campus entry. Classrooms, a 150-seat lecture hall, computer rooms and conference rooms are fully equipped with audio-visual and learning technology. Students also have full access to information technology and distance learning. The assembly of those units is designed to create a common space that is the epicenter of the school.
