It is one of the most recognisable buildings on campus and incorporates a range of facilities including lecture theatre, exhibition, classroom and seminar spaces, design studios, computer laboratories, student lounge, workplace environments and integrated public domain.The project has received international acclaim for its design excellence and environmental agenda, being awarded Honor Award for Design Excellence, Sustainable Design Awards Program from the AIA New York Chapter, Boston Society of Architects.
