The New Academic Building at FIT is centered around the creation of an iconic structure to form a lasting identity for the school. Designed by SHoP Architects, this new 10 story/100,000sf horizontal addition to the existing Feldman Center, will include both academic and student life spaces including classrooms, design studios and exhibition spaces. The new addition will be connected to the existing buildings exterior façade creating a new atrium space which will contain a large student commons at its heart.
HKA, as part of a multidisciplinary Buro Happold engineering team, is providing full code consulting and accessibility services on the project.
