The Arts and Computational Sciences Building defines the southern edge of the Academic Quad.Active program is clustered around activity nodes and interconnected outdoor spaces. These features ease wayfinding, and foster impromptu meetings and collaboration for students, faculty and staff. Exterior circulation articulates the pedestrian experience at the ground and upper levels facing the Academic Quad. This allows all levels of the building to participate in the campus experience, and helps the building display its function. Balconies and exterior gathering spaces denote major pedestrian pathways.
