MAP

The Computer Science and Engineering Building, with its complex research including robotics and artificial intelligence, is one of the premier computer science schools in the United States.

The different laboratory groups, faculty and students had previously been housed in various locations on the campus, and they are now consolidated in one building specifically designed to meet their needs. The interior space is open, filled with natural light and fosters an atmosphere of interaction and vibrancy. The building contains a sky-lit gathering place – an open interior court with a staircase, which follows the slope of the hilly site and connects all floors.

The site both fronts onto the North Campus Commons, designed by Eero Saarinen, and forms a bridge up a steeply rising topography to the north. A continuous outdoor stair and ramp allows students to access the site through new landscaped courtyards to the residences at the north.
