The Breazzano Family Center Blazes a Trail for Academic Development in Collegetown 

Ithaca, United States

ikon.5 architects

New York, United States, 2019-02-13 -

Located in the Collegetown section of Ithaca, New York, one block from Cornell’s main campus, the Breazzano Family Center for Business Education is a seven-story, 76,000-square-foot, twenty-first-century teaching and learning environment, and the first academic building to be built on this burgeoning precinct of the Cornell campus. State-of-the-art classrooms are supported by breakout rooms, faculty and student offices, social spaces, and a four-story atrium commons designed to accommodate a wide variety of events. The Breazzano Family Center’s top three floors provide enclosed offices for faculty and administrators, open office workstations, conference rooms and team rooms, and two broadcasting studios that transmit lectures and seminars to students in the Cornell Executive MBA Americas program.

 

"Business education at Cornell is at an inflection point, and I am just humbled and honored to be a part of the transformation," said David Breazzano, MBA '80.

 

"This spectacular new facility, which Dave has made possible, is a harbinger of more exciting opportunities yet to come," said Cornell President Martha E. Pollack.

 

"It's an exceptional facility. Not only does it provide state-of-the-art classrooms, office space, two high-def studios, but much more important, really, it provides a forum and a place for our community to get together," said Soumitra Dutta, Dean of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business.

 

The Breazzano Family Center is distinctly modern in its approach. The building façade is a combination of clear and patterned glass with a rhythmic arrangement of angled and straight projecting mullion-fins, colored compatibly with the salmon-orange brick of its neighbors. The transparency of the ground floor and the active learning commons, highlighted by an undulating feature wall of wood slats and video screens, embraces Dryden Road. The variegated patterns of the facades serve to reduce the scale of the building, and the setback upper floors along Linden Avenue are rendered in dark metal to differentiate upper from lower and facilitate a relationship with the smaller scale of adjacent buildings.

 

"I'm very happy that it’s fulfilling all of the goals originally set for it, but also doing so much more for the college. When I think about what this building can do for us, I'm really excited. It's a joy to see this building when it's full of students, particularly at night, when it shines out in Collegetown," said Mark Nelson, the Anne and Elmer Lindseth Dean of the Johnson Graduate School of Management.

 

“The design of this facility has a strong and welcoming presence that expresses Cornell’s commitment in strengthening its relationship with the City of Ithaca,” said Arvind Tikku, principal of ikon.5 architects.

 

The Breazzano Family Center for Business Education has received honors and accolades from a number of professional organizations and awards programs, including the Chicago Athenaeum, the Architizer A+ Awards, the Society of American Registered Architects, and chapters of the American Institute of Architects.
