Occupying an exceptional site just south of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, this competition-winning design is the first project of Fordham’s ambitious 24-year master plan to transform its Lincoln Center campus.
The 22-story building, clad in a curtain wall of architectural precast panels, metal, and glass, is shaped with a series of undulating arcs to make an engaging gesture toward Lincoln Center while providing a distinctive identity for the Law School. With an abundance of glass and light, the new building creates a collegial environment for students and faculty that welcomes the public and reflects the Law School’s tradition of civic responsibility.
In addition to classrooms, lecture halls, and seminar and conference rooms, the 468,000-square-foot building features a skylit atrium, a moot and trial court facility, and a 90,000-volume law library. The Residence Hall includes five integrated learning center suites, a dance studio, entertainment rooms, and a dining hall.
