The new UAlbany School of Business building

new ualbany school of business

The design, by big-name firm Perkins + Will, is intended to be a "modern interpretation" of the Edward Durell Stone design of the rest of the campus.

UAlbany revealed the design for its new $64 million School of Business building. Of course, this being 2010, it's not just a building -- it's "a hub of learning and innovation in commercialization and entrepreneurship for business students and professionals throughout the Capital Region and New York State."

The building will sit along the main campus entry and the design, according to a release, "preserves the modernist formality of the campus's orthogonal aesthetics in a more modern interpretation." It also will apparently incorporate eco-friendly elements.

Construction is slated to start this summer; the target date for completion is 2013.

I could have sworn I heard that it was going to be LEED silver.

Who's footing the bill for this one? It's very hard to listen to SUNY cry poverty amidst the backdrop of all those fancy new buildings on campus.

Heaven forbid they spend that money on students. How many students from poor backgrounds could get a college education for the cost of this builiding....

By my calculations, about 1000.

1000 kids will languish in rural NY towns and inner cities for lack of money to pay for school.

But that sure is shiny!

Unfortunately, the Edward Durell Stone design of the rest of the campus is a dated, unfriendly trainwreck.

It's not quite as hideous as the empire state plaza, but man is it close

I don't think that's what's meant by "serpentine belt replacement".
