The Saunders College of Business expansion will increase the building’s current footprint by nearly 80 percent. Inspired by the latest technology and building features found in industry, with an additional 35,000 square feet, Saunders College will better incorporate essential elements of applied learning and collaboration.
Essential to the building extension, there will be a premier university event space that doubles as an experiential learning lab for business students. The location will also benefit the entire RIT community as thousands of visitors and students will attend conferences, workshops, celebrations, and several other events each year.
Originally designed by Robert Macon, Max Lowenthal Hall, was constructed in the late 1970s. The new design by LaBella Associates seeks to honor the architectural language of the existing building, while reinterpreting materials to present them in a more modern way.
