With its sweeping façade, this building’s design suggests kinetic energy, movement, and flexibility. Steve and Sarah Smith Entrepreneurs Hall is organized around a common interactive center, supported by a cyber café, conference center, research library, museum, and collaborative classrooms.
Adjacent breakout “team war rooms” are flexible, re-configurable spaces that occur on multiple levels and support the idea of multi-discipline collaboration. All spaces are linked to state-of-the-art technologies supporting real-time simulations and distance learning is planned, supporting links to campuses and businesses across the country. This project was a collaborative venture of Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford and Ellerbe Becket.
