Project Description

The new home for the College of Business and the School of Information Technology and Communications Design at the California State University, Monterey Bay campus will allow collaboration and interactive learning opportunities between students, faculty and staff.

Designed by HMC Architects of San Jose, the new 58,000-square-foot sustainable structure houses two programs together meeting the university’s vision for a more integrated learning environment. Students will work together “flipping” the learning process on its head. Assignments and projects will be completed in class while lectures are given online. Both schools are not only working together but they are changing the way to approach business and encouraging the spirit of innovation.

The Business & Information Technology building is located near the heart of the campus, adjacent to the Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library. The building has three levels connected together by an atrium and includes eight classrooms, 12 laboratories, offices for faculty members, conference rooms and student study areas and lounge. The bottom floor allows for flexible classroom configurations with sliding glass walls. This project achieved LEED Platinum NC.
