Responding to the site layout, the building is located at the hub of student activity. The close proximity to the student recreation center, ASU student housing and the Memorial Union allows the new facility to act as a gateway into the heart of the campus and ASU culture. The design provides optimized planning efficiencies for cutting-edge MBA instruction with a dramatic facade, sloping walls, and an intimate courtyard, defining this state-of-the-art building. A unique feature of this facility is that it's heated and cooled completely by an under-floor air system. This uncommon design not only saves energy over conventional overhead systems, but also improves the air quality and comfort control for the building occupants.
