Center for Engineering and Computer ScienceDartmouth College
The Center for Engineering and Computer Science will be a new academic interdisciplinary research facility located on the Dartmouth College campus in Hanover, New Hampshire.
The new, 160,000 SF facility will fulfill an acute space demand for cutting edge engineering and computer science research and teaching in biotech, energy technologies, cyber-security, and other programs contributing to the advancement of knowledge and problem solving in critical fields. The design of the building is organized around interactions, to promote synergies between fields and spark discoveries in global science and engineering challenges. The interior experience will be one of openness and transparency, with glass walls so that work within the labs is visible to fellow researchers, students, and visitors. The Center for Engineering and Computer Science project improves the West End of campus by removing a through street, making the area more pedestrian in character and relocating parking spaces below grade.
The building will consist of 4 stories plus an enclosed mechanical penthouse, above 3 floors of below-grade parking for 340 cars. The primary entry to the building will be at the north end, where the building will express a 3-story massing; as the grade slopes to the south, a secondary entry at the south end will express a 4-story massing.Back to work section
