Gerri C. LeBow Hall

Drexel University LeBow College of Business | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The design intent for the new home of Drexel’s LeBow College of Business was to create a marquee building for the university that was tailored to accommodate best practices in business education. The robust masonry and glass structure forms a visual connection to downtown Philadelphia while physically connecting Drexel’s main quadrangle to bustling Market Street. Students are exposed to a corporate environment through a series of innovative student spaces and a transparent, open interior oriented around a central atrium that is a place for informal interactions between students, faculty, and visitors. Learning spaces include a mock trading lab, small-business incubator, “cluster classrooms” that accommodate both lectures and groupwork, and small isolated breakout rooms for collaboration.

In association with Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Landscape completed in assocation with  Lager Raabe Skafte.
