Edward P. Evans Hall, the new home of the Yale School of Management, has opened for business. The 242,000-sf facility was designed by Foster + Partners, with Gruzen Samton as architect of record.

The facility includes 16 classrooms, faculty offices, academic centers, and student and meeting spaces around a central courtyard on a 4.25-acre site. The program also includes a 350-seat auditorium, a library, a dining commons, and a coffee shop.

The central courtyard is intended to accommodate studyhing and socializing, with a large amount of exteior glazing helping to promote a unifying effect between indoor and outdoor spaces.

An art installation by Sol LeWitt is a distinctive feature. Yale has released a series of construction videos, as well as the video below, featuring Lord Norman Foster discussing the design. 

 

 

Other members of the Building Team: Buro Happold (MEP, SE, FP); URS Partnership (CE); Olin Partnership (landscape architect); Claude Engle (lighting design); Arup (AV/IT/security/acoustics); HB Communications (AV consultant); VDA (vertical transportation); Ricca Newmark Design (food service consultant); Dimeo Construction (CM).

The school has released a narrated slideshow featuring some of the images below.
