Golisano Institute for Sustainability Research Building

Golisano Institute for Sustainability Research Building

Excellence in Design Award
Educational Facilities, National Award of Excellence, National Award of Merit

Rochester, N.Y.
 
The Golisano Institute for Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) wanted a signature building that would serve as a living laboratory for scientific discovery and experimental learning that could serve as the Western Gateway to RIT. The result is an 84,000-square-foot complex, comprised of a four-story research and three-story academic and office building connected by a four-story galleria. It houses laboratories, classrooms and office space, with high-performance design features that make it a living laboratory of sustainability. The Golisano Institute is among the first in the world to offer a Ph.D. program in sustainability.
