The Yale School of Management was founded in the late 1970s and has outgrown several buildings at the north end of the Yale campus. The new campus consolidates the school's many facilities into a single 230,000 sf campus near the site of the original complex.
The facility's main components—classrooms, offices, common spaces and auditorium—are grouped around a central court, in the tradition of Yale campus architecture, large enough to accommodate graduation ceremonies and other major events. The ground floor is devoted to common facilities, the auditorium and publicly oriented components of the office block. Two double-height floors accommodate tiered and flat-floored classrooms, which lend themselves to horseshoe and other layouts, reflecting the varying teaching methods of the School of Management curriculum.
This project is anticipating LEED Gold certification.
