Tulane University Goldring/Woldenberg Complex – A.B. Freeman School of Business

This project’s goal is to promote integration in the business school between the undergraduate and graduate students, who were previously in two separate buildings. This was achieved by creating a 46,000 Sq. Ft. addition to tie the two buildings together thus creating the Tulane University Goldring/Woldenberg Complex.

Learning on display, which helps make the learning process as engaging as possible, is a major concept of this project. The 215’ long, 53’ tall undulated glass curtainwall façade bends around four live oak trees and showcases the school at work. There are two glass drums stretching from floor to ceiling which house classrooms visible from 360 degrees thus referencing the sculptural concept of “in the round”. Every classroom in the addition has glass walls and there are many spaces throughout the complex designed for informal meetings, studies and collaborations.

This project has achieved LEED Gold certification.
