A new Graduate Facility for Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business relieved strained existing facilities while engaging its campus context. Tightly bounded by mature live oaks on two sides and taller buildings on two others, the building alleviates some of the monumentality of the mid-1980’s original building and ties the campus together through the exterior spaces it creates. The site plan also corrects inefficient pedestrian circulation created by neighboring buildings. The new 58,000 square foot facility provides classrooms, seminar and conference rooms, faculty offices, dining facilities and a variety of study and student service spaces. Specialized classrooms serve the demands of lecture theater and audio-visual screenings, information systems lab work, plus simulated, real-time trading and television production.
